Over the past couple of weeks Daniel, my blog collaborator has been keeping the posts coming while I’ve been otherwise occupied. Gardens, as the Health & Safety people are always telling us, are dangerous places and I have just contributed to the statistics. A sandal strap caught on something, stopped my feet while the rest of me carried on – result – one fractured kneecap and six weeks in a thigh to ankle splint. No outdoors for me – in fact very little moving about at all. Thank goodness it is autumn and the garden is winding down. I will be sending friends outside to take photographs for the blog and taking a few photos from the window, but I’m also planning to expand the blog sections on Garden Design, Maintenance and Cottage Gardens while I’m confined to barracks.
