Gardening is definitely good for my state of health, it soothes me if I`m upset and is good at keeping me fit, in actual fact its also good for the rest of my family as I`d be terrible without my garden, so they`d suffer..

Hello Peter, nice to meet you. I am exactly the same. Winter is horrible time for me. Not just because it is night almost all the day, but also because everything is dead in the garden. Now each weekend when I enter my garden (it is not in the same place where I am living) I see something new, some new flowers, buds, a different colour combination of neighbourig plants - it is always different picture and smell.
If I could, I would build a house like circle. With inner garden in the circle and outer, main garden. That would be the place in which I would like to write, to treat, read books and meet friends and even die.

Oh! that would be my dream too Katarina. My gardening has saved my families lives many times over the years....I have gone into the garden to calm myself down instead of killing them.
