My urban garden

GARDENING

One of my hobbies is gardening (100 sq ft. area designed in a über-lavish ‘town garden picturesque’ style) as pictured above.

I love sitting in my garden during the Summer having early morning breakfast, as Spring has gone and sprung its surprises of dew-drops already, and I’ll be reading later on with full concentration, as I’ll have my ear-plugs in, pure solitude for those hours spent with words, under the dabbled shade of trees.

I must say in whispered tones, as one has a tendency to rise ones voice with ear-plugs in, particularly if one needs to speak to another signalling: “yes, more ice cubes required”, which does have a side benefit of giving the garden birds another tune to add to their repertoire, as they reply back, along with the Black Crow birds.

I won’t say what the robust Magpie birds said — its totally unprintable — for such delicate constitutions; as the translation might be to strongly mis-interpreted. But the other thing I must do, is identify a certain species of bird, beside them singing ‘cheep, cheep’ once in a while, and has anyone ever seen a Thrush bird give a filthy look when stopped in mid-flow? So it also might be worth exploring at the iSpot social networking site, to see if I can spot any other birds that wing it into my garden here and then high-tail it out again; once they’ve done what needs to be done. Ahem. Discretion If You Please.

Because during the Autumn I love sitting out there, in my garden, watching the sun-set, wrapped up warm with a shawl around me, an old worn woolly hat on head, a pair of fluffy slippers on me feet, and fingerless gloves on hands, with a large cup (a mug) of a hot chocolate drink made from full fat milk, indulged in a drop (or two) of Brandy mixed with whipped double cream and dark chocolate flakes on top, whilst the other hand is reaching to munch from a confectionery box of ‘After Eight Mints‘ too. Suddenly the Winter nights always seems comfy. 

As above all, its a private modest garden for seeking gentle relaxation from the outside world and I’d do the same lush horticultural design if I had a balcony, along with a Budgie bird in a gilded cage for company, and if I had none of that, I’d turned one corner of a room, by a window, into an indoor tropical oasis that includes the indoor water feature as a focal point because fountains symbolise the life-force, also unity of the self, it represents the source of your vilality, the spiritual centre from which you draw your inspiration and joy.
