Why Am I Doing This?
As I was surfing the web for the first time these past few weeks. I had the same thought over and over again in my head. All of these web sites feel a little like lost voices in the void hoping to land in your lap (top), to inspire, refresh and ponder the profound and the profoundly strange. What is this urge to tell our stories to effectively no one and everyone? I realized then, that besides this slow burn in my belly to do this, I really I want to learn as much about the topic as you do. And so, through sharing my experience, I re-learn what it was that I wanted to learn in the first place and why, and to deepen my understanding of the subject.
I haven't yet seen Recreating Eden , or smelled all 892 roses in the Pickering Nurseries catalogue, and I certainly don't have all of the answers (and wouldn't it be lovely if I did). It's just that I am really out there every day seeing, doing and observing, and why not share it with you gentle reader? For it is you that I think about when I make a garden. To bring serenity and joy to your day when you stop and smell the roses I have chosen and planted for one of my customers, in your neighbourhood.
Oh that was cheesy! cheesy but heart felt. I am glad I wrote it.
Enjoy my site and future podcasts.
