A Forgotten Garden

Lots of things get forgotten in the rush to stay still; blogs, dogs and gardens.
I trundled out today, peering like Mole into the sunlight, emerging from my office and a variety of deadlines to squint myopically at the world outside.
From a distance it looked quite pleasant then as I adjusted my senses, the enormity of the problem became apparent and I felt like hurtling right back in again.
However, I knew I had to water the tomatoes and make sure no rabbits had got into the veggie plot and so girding my loins, straightening my spine and with purposeful tread I ventured forth.
And in amongst the hordes of weeds I spied the reason why there are times I actually want to be outside rather than indoors.
It is a forgotten garden but a really rather beautiful one too...

A garden is a wonderful place, attended or otherwise. Overgrown is not exactly wonderful, but will do in a pinch.

Hope you are having a wonderful spring/summer otherwise.

My garden look like yours too. Why do the weeds have to get quite so high? Your garden still looks beautiful.

Pam said...

Rob Bear - it is a wonderful summer now we don't have a hose pipe ban!
Maggie Christie - weeds grow so high because they can just like dogs lick their nether regions both are not nice and frankly should not be seen in public!
Pam - relaxing when you don't have to we'd it! :)
Suburbia - but underneath a hot bed of depravity, seriously you should seen what the rabbits get up too!
About Last Weekend - quintessentially English in that on closer inspection it has a lotto be desired!

I'm glad I could enlarge the photos. Your garden is lovely and wild in a way that doesn't exist over here. I love it.
