December 2020

Reflecting on this strange year, as 2020 draws to a close, little did we think that we would have to draw on our plants and gardens so much to help us pass the time.  I have always been a solitary gardener and found the enforced isolation bearable, as I was able to get outside in my own space because I had no external commitments.  As a result, I enjoyed my garden more. The blooming of some of the special (to me) plants lightened my heart during these tough times, although I was been unable to share the joy with my friends and family. As all plagues surely pass and our once in a lifetime isolation will hopefully fade into the distance, I think we will come to value the time we were able to spend amongst our plants and gardens and the joy and comfort that they afforded us.
