A year ago I put in an offer on a new place to live. I won the bid and bought myself a wreck of a home that has taken this long to make habitable. It has taken a whole year out of my gardening life and blog to move and put down roots in a new home..Finally I feel like I have arrived.
I have continued to garden during the year but my heart has been elsewhere. Naturally, I have focused on interiors rather than exteriors. When you don’t have a bathroom or kitchen your priorities change.. Gardening, however, has kept me grounded during this transient period of my life, such a therapeutic profession.
My heart lies with both Architecture and Horticulture and marrying of the two. The first most often inspired by the second. I have moved into a Georgian property where the proportions and details within are so carefully considered they can only have been inspired by the Golden Ratio (The golden ratio appears in some patterns in nature, including the spiral arrangement of leaves and other plant parts.)
So I return at the best time of year for any British Gardener – Spring! Heralded by the flowering of my favourite Lily.. Zantedeshia
They grow well in damp conditions. In fact they can grow in shallow water as a marginal plant..
So, hello again to all my fellow gardeners.. here’s to another fabulous year in the garden 🙂
