In between the flagstones

When I looked out this morning at my beloved shed, I noticed something I hadn’t expected to see under the door. My first thought was that something had happened to the support but upon closer inspection, lo and behold, it was this:


I don’t remember any glory-of-the-snow growing in what was the original garden path, so it must have been transported there when I was filling in the foundations for the shed. However, it quite clearly doesn’t mind the builders sand.

Phacelia doesn’t seem to mind, either, as some has started to grow in the sand still on what used to be the patio. So who knows what I could grow intentionally in this spot…. I had thought of trying carrots, so I might actually give it a go.

On a more regular footing, the peas in the shed have started to germinate, so hopefully I can have them in the ground soon. But in the meantime, I will enjoy the glory-of-the-snow coming up all over the garden front and back.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
