Well we’re home from our long trip away, the garden is a mass of chickweed, flowering vegetables and overgrown borders, but there is a lot to eat.
I wont list how everything is doing in the vegetable beds, suffice to say there’s a fair bit of weeding and tidying to be done now we’re home.
For all the blue sky and hot sun, I’ve missed my garden. The flowers, the lush green grass we take for granted and sometimes complain about when it can’t be mowed due to the rain. I’ve missed the peace, the birdsong and the utter quiet at night-time. I’m grateful for everything the garden provides us with, whether it’s stunning blooms or oversized courgettes.

Am I alone in my wistful musings? Do you miss your garden when you’re away or even give it a second thought?
