I miss my garden


I've been wasting a lot of time on the internet when I should be working on embroidery for my show in three weeks time (eek!), but I think if I still had a garden I would probably be spending all my time there and not getting any work done anyway.

When I lived in Bristol I had a teeny tiny garden that I turned from an overgrown dumping ground into a productive space, complete with vegetables, flowers, herbs, a very small pond and enough space to sit down in. When I moved to my new home I said goodbye to the garden, but I didn't think that i'd still be missing it as much as I do.

Up until the end of July last year I had a tiny outdoor area here- which is where the lupin was grown. It was little more than a balcony with a few pots on, but again I managed to grown flowers, herbs and some tomatoes. At the end of July I became the proud owner of a conservatory, and whilst it's nice to have the extra room, and to know that the people downstairs are no longer getting leaked on, I am missing the outdoors and the time spent with my hands in the soil.

You can grow lots of lovely stuff in conservatories! Just google it and you'll find lots of ideas :)
