I am staying in Cornwall with friends K and D. This is relaxation, being attended to, I have really unwound. Yesterday we went in to Tavistock, Devon, walked by the river Tavy, then back to a little more gardening. I do not have a garden of my own, so one of the pleasures of my life has been to join these friends in their garden, a place of variety and gentle but persistent care. If you have to be bit by a bug, then gardening is a good bug to be bit by.
Let this garden speak for itself. [I’ve got rid of some bindweed, cut back a few shrubs, just been there, breathing.]
