I left the island to visit a friend who writes gardenbooks and came back with lots of inspiration. Spent all day digging and weeding and it felt so good! The first summer on the island the standard reply to -where’s mum? was -in the garden.  Yesterday I complained to my husband about how lazy I’ve been with the gardening this summer. His reply was  -it’s because you’ve had so much fun! True that. This summer has been amazing, still is actually but now the signs of autumn are kreeping up.
I am not alone anymore, doing the gardening, I have seven little helpers following me around wherever I go. They do the digging and fertilising and I do the rest. Need to train them better in what plants they aren’t allowed to eat though.
