I’m really pleased with how the plot is shaping up this year; for the last 3 years I have felt my motivation slipping.  The weather, pests and rampant bindweed didn’t help improve my mood.  At the start of this year though, something changed.  The plot has always my place for solitude and reflection and I really needed some of that in my life.  The plot benefited from my attention too.

This honeysuckle was installed with the intention of covering a trellis alongside the shed.  I imagined being on the pallet patio, watching the sun go down and surveying the estate (!) surrounded by fragrant honeysuckle.


This might be the year it happens…
