I’ve decided that having the builders replacing the roof requires a certain degree of fatalism and detachment on two counts. Firstly, that there is only a ceiling and a tarpaulin between us and the outside world, and secondly the garden has disappeared under a mountain of building materials. Rather than fret about it I’ve been focusing my energies in the greenhouse where I’ve planted bulbs and sown seeds, including sweet peas that are now germinating nicely. Fortunately we have been very lucky with the weather and by the end of the week the roof will be weather tight. Gardening however will remain impossible for some weeks to come.
