A colleague asked me why, if the house was sold, would I waste my time working in the garden?
Good question. Possible answers:
- Pride - damned if I'll turn over the garden in a sorry state to its new owners.
- I enjoy it.
- Plants are living things that, like all living things, need care and nurturing.
- It keeps me off the wild streets of Aylmer!
