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.

All our love...and although we all feel (and are perplexed by) your current difficulty; this much I know, I have never known you to be stalled by trials. Blessings on your courage, Katie

I'm sorry for your trouble. It's always hard to break up with someone you've loved. I hope things turn out the way you want them to.

So sorry to hear that news Peggy. Can't imagine the grief you are going through but our thoughts are with you.

I know this must be a difficult time but am glad you have family there. I wish you all the best as you take each day, one at a time. Your future will be brighter though it may not seem so now.

I'm glad you took those seeds with you. They will bloom where they are planted (as they say). Peace today, tomorrow and always. xo

Oh what a shock, I am so very sorry. I understand your sadness completely. Such a difficult decision. As Sarah said, the seeds will grow, plant them and enjoy them.
