garden/building site

When we arrived here two years ago we had a pile of stones ( no utilities AT ALL and no workign roof) -  six foot high briar patches and grass - and that was it, and nettles as tall as me...groundworks churned up any prettiness, and we had to thin out the trees of too many self seeded saplings, after two years I am getting some structure in place and every season I sew more seeds and plant more bulbs, each year my seeded plants progress to a pot then into the ground.  Sometimes I get gifted plants from visitors, and sometimes other gardeners let me have cuttings or lift me whole overgrown plants.

I'm playing with ideas for the well garden at the moment....

We took the digger to do some work at the weekend ( for some brit ex pats), and contrary to usual habit I went along for the ride (hadn't seen much of him in the week and was in need of company) and I came home with a load of plants and shrubs, and a new cock (Derek had to be dispatched as he was way too big and damaging my hens).  Meet Sid (Vicious) mate for Nancy (Spungen aka Daft Punk) we will have fun with any offspring - Vivienne and Westwood being two names in the pipeline, 

We don't compare any more, and at the weekend it was nice that the comparison ended at - aren't you glad you made the move to Brittany from the UK and don't you love the lifestyle?  As I said to Mrs D only yesterday - I was born in Blighty and look for a love of my homeland, and there is plenty to feel affection towards, however I am Home now, and it feels gooood. So when I visit the UK, or for that matter you and your desk, it's really not to compare contrast measure or critique, it's just to have a nosy around to share each others worlds and revel in the joy of friendship regardless of culture politics or habitation..., and don't forget there is still a space to come and nosy in person at 4 Kermarquer - come see the garden for real...  to find out more just click on events tab at the top of the page to go to the WOYWW retreat Info - click on the icon and All Will Be Revealed...
