OK, Dad, You Win [May. 4th, 2017|01:05 pm]
Tony Grist
I never intended to do any gardening. We came down here to look after my mother not manage her hobby for her- but you get dragged in...

The gardeners didn't show up on Wednesday and we had two fruit trees to plant- so this morning I sourced a wheelbarrow, put on my leather gloves and planted them myself.

Now I'm looking at what I've done and thinking I'd like more trees- in fact, how about turning the whole of the back lawn- now lumpy with mole hills- into an orchard?

I came back in after planting the second tree and Ailz showed me that the boilersuit my father used to wear for gardening had fallen off its peg. Something it had managed even though an apron which hadn't shifted was hanging on top of it. She interprets this as signifying his approval of my change of heart.

Gardening is much like a meditation if you plan it right, although planting an orchard is definitely a mega-project. And I would hire someone to do the digging for you in that case!

Gardening is very like meditation. As for diggers, we already have them; they just didn't show up (for excusable reasons) yesterday.

An orchard

Is a massive but beautiful project! I have found that once love of gardening is awakened inside one it's not to be stopped. And I'm with Ailz...your dad has spoken.

Re: An orchard

It's also a long-term project- and we may not be staying here very long...
