Pics of the garden that didnt win a prize:-(( see the link below.
Is winning really everything? In this case, strangely, it isnt. Because the pleasure of creating it and then in every flower really lasts long.
Today I met a lady who said she tore up her prize winning garden to plant trees and shrubs that birds love. And truly her garden is a haven of birds.. tens and tens of them. Chirping and squeaking and cawing and calling in the early morning. Great chorus.
And I have just dismantled my dove's nest after months. I miss the sudden thumps they made in the exhaust chute but its a relief to cook without thinking what is going to drop out next. Tho we still have some residue clinging to the chute.
