I thanked her for being so thoughtful and assured her I would certainly do just that. Later on it got popped into the basket on my bedroom bookcase along which contains all my magazines and cutouts and every so often I've glimpsed it sat there waiting for me.
As I hung another load of washing out on the line this morning I decided that today I would use my picture as an inspiration board for the garden.
Here's what I chose
No 1 - beautiful sweet peas growing up willow supports
No 2 - fresh eggs collected from our chickens. We don't have any and it's not likely we will, but this is my dream garen after all!
No 3- old metal containers full of candles for the balmy summer evenings spent outside
No 4 - a bit of recycling here. Empty food cans painted and planted up or just used for pretty posies
No 5 - deckchairs, rugs, books, glasses of elderflower cordial
No 6 - assortment of chairs around a big table covered with a rosy cloth and bunting
No 7 - washing drying on a line strung between sturdy old trees, maybe in the orchard?
No 8 - a never ending supply of soft fruits so I could make jam and cakes and ice creams and other delicious goodies because I would suddenly become a terrific cook as well as a gifted gardener
No 9 - a robin to come and visit me each day, no garden should be without one.
What would you have in yours?
