and thought about my garden. It’s not particularly big, but in the cold grey of today I felt that even a small garden is a lot of work. From the tiny, exhausted patch of grass to the beds with cast off, plastic teapots and the neighbour’s falling down fence, there isn’t really anything that doesn’t needed attending to in some way.
