April A-Z: G is for Gardening

My eventual aim in life is to become an old lady who potters about in her garden, enjoying both the activity and the outcome in equal measure. I’ve always really enjoyed spending time outside and it’s been fun over the last couple of years finding out what works and what doesn’t in our garden, I’m quite keen on growing the traditional, old-fashioned cottage garden plants in a rather informal layout – think Jane Austen’s Lizzie Bennet in her ‘pretty-ish little wilderness’ and that’s basically the overall look I’m going for, or perhaps Mary Lennox’s ‘Secret Garden’ as imagined in Frances Hodgson Burnett’s children’s book?  Add a couple of homely garden benches and suchlike, peaceful, restful places to linger in the fresh air, and I’m all sorted… Well eventually I’ll be sorted, because of course a growing garden takes patience and time to evolve…

Life events have conspired to pull me away from blogging over the last couple of months, and the idea of taking part in this year’s April Blogging from A-Z Challenge seems like a good way to try to get back into the habit of reading and posting regularly. Originally I thought of just using any old random words to go with the particular letter of the day, but realistically without a clear theme to work towards I’m not sure I’d be able to keep my focus for a full month… So instead I’ve opted for a relatively simple, if slightly self-indulgent work-around: This year I’ll be posting 26 things about me, nothing too taxing to write about yet still fulfilling the brief!
