My garden


By sanbaz


Hi everyone
After a long absence I’m back into gardening, mostly due to ill health and bereavement of my mum and eldest son.
It’s been a tough Rd and I’m now trying to get my life and garden back on track.
I can’t do as much but still enjoy being outside and love my little haven.
I’m more wildlife friendly loving my hoggy frogs and birds.
I don’t use any insect poisons or slug as I let nature do that which is doing ok.
I still love painting and will do a blog on that at some point for those who paint.
Anyway hopefully I will pop in more often now.

You have created a beautiful garden which has a real sense of peace.

I am sorry to read about the sad things that have recently happened but feel sure that the lovely garden you have created will help and comfort you.

Looking forward to seeing your paintings too.

Good to see you back, Sanbaz, and you have my heartfelt sympathy for your sad losses. We recently lost our younger son, so I know how hard it is. Your garden is looking lovely, and hopefully it is bringing some comfort to you, and that you’re finding painting therapeutic too.

San, thanks for your PM which I shall reply to later. I remember when you and Baz built the pond, some years ago, and you had so much help from Ray (?) on GoY and got it sorted in the end. Garden looks lovely ... :o)) x

20 Jun, 2019


Yes we did get it sorted with help and advice,,, Ray doesn't ring bells though and can't remember who but was grateful at the time Shirley.
Iv come to realise after all that's happened my garden doesn't have to be perfect I just have to feel happy in it which I do ,:) xx

San, I think Ray was on here as Bonkersbon but he and Jane started up the Ispyabird site. Think that has finished now though.

You are totally right in saying a garden doesn't have to be perfect, it's whatever makes you happy and feel at one with the world.

20 Jun, 2019


Exactly my philosophy San ... imperfection is so much more relaxing!

20 Jun, 2019


Yes your right I remember him and his wife loved birds and wildlife.
His phone was amazing
