Making Space for Nature
It’s that time of year again ….. so tempting to get cracking in the garden and tidy everything up. I thought I would cut the long grass outside our driveway –
Fortunately with shears not strimmer – as I raked up the ”hay” a tiny Slowworm – golden and quite beautiful – riggled back into the grasses. I had disturbed its warm bed but not for long thank goodness.
I’ve dead headed the roses and cut back the Cranesbill Geraniums and Comfrey – all have new growth and the roses are blooming – beautifully. We’ve cut the grass and edged the borders (a little bit) but the rest will take care of itself until Spring. You have to know when to stop and smell the roses!
