Having looked at the well tended garden of Michael Lynch and pondered on Mac Cumming's early escape to downsizing, I thought you might like to see a complete contrast of growth that surrounds our little bungalow paradise. Now in my 81st year and Margaret in her 79th, we are not in the best of health from many aspects and can not look after our 'plot' as well as we have done. However, beauty is in the eye of the beholder so we maintain it in such a way that we are able to get around it without becoming lost. The bonus is to find a myriad of plants that we never planted which we call 'wanted weeds' and it is amazing what the birds and wind can bring in. Downsizing may come but not if we can avoid it so here is our garden in all of its glory...we love it.
I think that Michael will agree with me that our gardens are like chalk and cheese but, in there way, both are equally a million light years away from Bede Buildings and Arthur Street.
