It's not always about flowers....
Walking the garden today I realised that I rarely write about the trees, that I have planted during my ten years at the farmhouse.
Silver birch are such dainty trees, and the hardiest of all broadleaves. The trees affinity with water encourages the growth of many forms of fungi.
My parents and brother have been tracing our family tree. Father's side shows a Horticulturist, and Mother's shows farm workers, hence my love of soil........
By chance yesterday I saw my neighbour, she keeps horses.
I think you know what's coming......I now have a lovely pile of manure behind the garage......it should be ready for the garden in a few months. Happy days :)
