Inheriting

Farm Scene by Hannah Foley. All right reserved (www.owlingabout.co.uk)In a kind of lovely postscript to my last post, I received a brilliant email. I’ll quote a little bit of it:

 “…just a quick note to say we moved into your old house a month ago and adore your garden and the hard work you put into it. I will attempt to keep it to the same high standards you set with it…”

Is that possibly the nicest thing in the world? They didn’t have to email and they don’t have to care…but they did and they do! It’s a real encouragement to carry on with the garden here, however briefly we’ll be staying. And maybe, just maybe, someone, somewhere is working hard on a garden that we’ll get to inherit.
