Trisha’s Meanderings - April

Such a privilege to have a garden and to be able to spend time in it - even if it is only fifteen minutes or so a day, raking up some leaves to put on the veggies or in the compost, planting some winter veggies or saving seeds of summer annuals such as larkspurs, lychnis, queen Anne’s lace or the wild carrot to scatter around in early spring.

 

If cutting back wisteria or grapevine or clematis, try making wreaths from them, or simply fill vases with coloured foliage branches - or make a floral hanging ball by pushing cuttings of branches into either an oasis ball or a ball made of chicken wire - and hang from a tree for an interesting ephemeral piece of sculpture. In my wild garden, long fallen branches have been fashioned into an ephemeral teepee structure and small twigs can be made into large bird nests to put under a tree.  

The joy of gardening is as much about creating beauty, however ephemeral… as it is about cultivating and growing plants and food.
