We have two wood stoves at my house, and this is how we heat in winter. While that’s all well and good, we also have to take some trees down every year, as well as get some logs delivered in order to have enough wood to last a winter. Luckily, we’re nearing the end of taking our own trees down, and have only a few more to go. Since we’ve already rented a wood chipper this spring, I know that we’re finished with the trees this year. Unfortunately, we needed to take down some smaller trees in the backyard due to their being a hazard. Because of this, we now have some room back there that will be rather bare once we get the trees cut up and the wood stacked.
So, I’ve been dreaming of gardens. You know, those fantastic English gardens that look so wonderfully peaceful? Those gardens. However, as much as I dream of having gardens like that, I know that I just don’t have the ability to create them. In my head, I’m the most artistic person ever. In reality, not so much. I do have a spatial-relation problem (I can’t picture how something is going to look), but I also don’t know much about gardens. Years ago, I had a large vegetable garden, and I did manage that pretty well. However, I’ve never planted flowers and have no idea how to go about it. So, for the moment I’m just dreaming of gardens.
If you have any books for inept beginners that I could read in the subject, I’d be grateful if you’d let me know. Meanwhile, here are some photos of wonderful gardens to enjoy!
