The Neglected Garden (And Blog)


Sorry it's been such a long time between posting again. I have to be honest and say that I was thinking of giving up afternibbin. I've been feeling quite down about it for a while, you know the feelings, why would anyone want to read about my personal life and the such, I'm pretty sure all bloggers suffer from these crippling thoughts sometimes. But then I received a kind word from a stranger and suddenly I remembered why I love blogging. I love the connections you make with people, no matter how small. So here I am, back and ready to share.

Recently most of my time has been spent filling in job application forms, preparing CV's, and writing covering letters all in the hopes of finding myself a new job. I am finding the whole process disheartening to say the least but I keep telling myself that the right job is out there, it will just take time. So due to the fact I've been distracted with this task I have really neglected the garden. Not surprisingly, because of this neglect it is forced to endure, the place is looking rather scruffy but I'm still enjoying it. I especially love how the garden's been changing recently as the colours of Autumn start to creep in. To me, if no one else, the place is looking beautiful.

    1. Thanks Jennifer. There's not as much going on as I'd like, I'm going to try to invest more time into getting the garden nice for Autumn next year after neglecting it so much this year. I'm fancying loads of grasses, Rudbeckias, Echinaceas and Asters. Hopefully that will make it up to my poor garden :)

  5. There's something so beautiful about the fragility of dying flowers.
    Gosh that sounded a lot more deep and meaningful than I meant it to!
