One-liner Wednesday and JusJoJan 4th

I cultivate my garden, and my garden cultivates me.

Robert Breault

I’m hoping to be well cultivated this year once I have left full-time corporate life!

I will have my work cut out for me. The front garden is infested with chafer grubs and these little blighters have made it into my back garden too. I have two choices. Spend a heap on money on nematodes to water into the grass and kill off the grubs, or remove the grass and let the birds feast on them. Both options have plusses and minuses. I’m not sure which way to go.

However, as I’ve not quite left corporate life yet, the decision doesn’t need to be made soon.

One-liner Wednesday – lost, but in a nice way

Pretty pink and white Matthiola flowers

I like gardening. It’s a place where I find myself when I need to lose myself.

Sometimes, when the world seems full of sadness, wandering aimlessly in the garden, just looking at the simple, yet pretty little flowers, is enough to lift the spirits.
