Petal picking

Pot pourie in the making. Petals picked at the right time and left to dry.

It’s a twice daily ritual. It gives me so much pleasure doing the ’rounds’. The garden holds the secrets of the universe, I love what it shows me.

Some plants have to go. Room has to be made for the new shoots. They need to grow in the right place. Taming some species letting wild others. Creating a balance between wild and cultivated and different varieties.

Developing good roots, that’s very important and is a matter of life and death. The roots of the wild plants are much stronger than the cultivated ones. Each has its place. Yes, it all happens in the garden.
