Sad Endings

I write in this blog about the garden that I neglect.  I love my house and the garden that surrounds it.  I may have to give it up.

The Man of the Place and I are splitting up. I am heartbroken.  I've told my immediately family and a few friends. The neighbours don't know yet though. I have no idea what I am going to do next.

I am staying with my son and his family. They say that I can stay for as long as I need.  That's lovely but I just want to go home.  I want to be in my house with my dog.  I want to water my houseplants, feed the fish and plan what I am going to put in the garden this year.

When I was leaving last week, I grabbed some mail that was addressed to me on the way out.  One of the envelopes contained seeds I had ordered.

I thought this would look lovely by the pond.  If it had ever stopped raining this winter, I would have got the vegetable patch dug over.  Now I don't know if that will happen.
