I hope that if and when I have to leave this garden I am looking forward and making lists of things to take with me. I don't have anything too exotic. This post will give me something to think about on this rainy grey day.

Lately I have been thinking about a new garden to be able to create in a different style. Since I won't be moving anytime soon I have been ripping and changing things. My garden isn't as crammed as her garden even though people talk about it like it is crammed. I love the crammed up garden. Maybe a better way to put it is intensely planted. I have been influenced by the modern style which when it is too minimalist I hate but One's tastes do change over the years.

Thanks, Linda, I'm off to read about Helen Dillon's garden move. You've pointed me in the right direction many times. You always have an informative blog about one interest or another. I've been away for quite a while but have managed to stumble my way back.

Barbara — Welcome back!


I'd say Scott Kunst looks far too young to retire.

Jason - That photo is from around 2008. He's got gray hair now.

How funny ... I had that same reaction when I read that article on Twigs Way. How could you not love her? And why wasn't I given a name as cool as Twigs Way? I can't wait to hear what you think about the book.

Oh, and Helen was featured on Gardeners' World this week. Her garden was a sight to behold and she was the kind of person I would love to chat with for hours. Her attitude to leaving the garden was astounding. She was truly excited for what would be next. I loved her attitude. Something to aspire to, I think.


Some big life changes in this post. I've left a couple of special gardens in my life and retain fond memories of the terrain, the beds, the smells and feelings of each space. I'm just now fully absorbing the wise words of Les Brake which he spoke to me three years ago. When asked about his years-ago move from his warm Texas garden to a very cold Alaskan one, he said, "A gardener gardens." (Attributed to his mother.) Won't it be interesting to see what Dillon does with her new garden space and Kunst (German for art)does with his new space of time?

Peter — ​Very thoughtful comments. I agree that it will be interesting to see what Dillion and Kunst do in the future. People always wonder how much time I spend in my garden because they see it as work. Some things may be more pleasant to do than others, but I think the comment that "gardeners garden" perfectly describes the situation. And yes, we will do it in any location for as long as we are able. And perhaps past that stage as well . . .
