garden therapy :)


Morning all.

Been a few weeks since I last posted anything but I have been working hard in the garden and things are starting to come on great…apart from my hanging baskets :(

Anyway today I am going to put garden therapy to the test, see if it can take my mind of things.. (me and my partner of 3 years have decided to have a break, he has moved out, im not sure what the future holds for us but i think the break will do me good)

So…up bright and early,my sons at his dads, the garden center is calling me and a messy back garden to tend to, on such a lovely day I cant think of anything else better to do :)

Hope you are all enjoying this heat wave we are having, just dont forget the sun block :)

hugs cheryl x

When I got divorced my garden saved my sanity! Its a good job the garden was such a mess I had too much to think about clearing all the rubbish out of it to think about anything else!! Everything happens for a reason. Its just a break - see how you feel in a few weeks.

There is nothing like gardening therapy, it'll certainly help you. :o)

Sometimes we just have to take a step back from a situation in order to see it more clearly. Having time to yourself in the garden will help. It will give you a chance to let things fall into place. Good luck for the future. Whatever it holds you'll get by :o))

Morning all, Thank you all for the positivity.

Had a very busy day yesterday, painted the fences(ran out of stain with only half a panel left to do grrrrr), planted up some baskets and tended to my veg.

Did not go mad at the garden center, just a few bedding plants.

Today im planning on cutting the grass..well the patch of weeds that think they are grass!!!! and tidy round a bit more.

Will up load some pics as soon as i find my camera.

Hugs x

I think we would all agree that gardening does relieve some of the stress - take each day one at a time and remember things will get easier.
