What motivates you to garden? Is being outside in the sunshine, watching something grow or w
Harvesting your own vegetables.

I love to spend all day in the garden satisfied I sit back with a big bowl of snap peas, or a tomato sandwich. That's what keeps me out there.
Well I hope im not to late to reply to this one?
I like gardening for a few reasons; Like its a hobby you can do as a group/family or alone, it keeps you fitter than sitting in a chair trying to sort the worlds problems out, you can see how and whats used when growing your own food?

And i must admit i like nothing better than the first thing in the morning garden inspection to see what nature has pushed up through the earth or the opening of the buds on the tree's over night,
Time just speeds past as your doing what you enjoy and then that last relaxing sit on the old garden seat just looking at the pure beauty of the garden as the day comes to an end and the birds settle in the trees,

I like how the seasons change and I have to change the wallflowers when they've finished to the summer plants and how people say how lovely my front garden looks, that really gives me a boost. It's harvesting the fruit and veg and just looking at it. Looking forward in the spring to see everything growing.
I spend all of my time in the garden and the housework can wait.

I like to think over many years, I've achieved an abiance, so I can spend part of a relaxed warm afternoon or evening (when we get any) in the garden, with a drink and a bit of nostalgia.

Especially on a Sunday.

In my opinion, gardens should be enjoyed whatever sort you've got. We should spend more time doing that, it's too easy to forget that when we're beavering away at something.

Whilst I do find gardening quite hard work and I find it unbelievably exciting and satisfying. As Peace Perfect Peace says, its better for you than sitting in a chair all day, the fresh air, the sunshine, "the move it or loose it" element, another version of that I've just heard..."Motion is the Lotion", the creative element of deciding what shape, texture, colour would suit where, what has worked and what hasn't, what needs to be moved or just go. I do have a back corner where I tend to gives these "rejects" a second chance rather than toss them out. Just today I moved 2 white hebes because they were overcrowding an area so I tidied them up, cut them back and planted them in this "rehab". Hebes don't like to be moved but you never know .
And Sean Regan, I do like you style, I too love a ponder with a tipple. One of my favorites is at the end of a big gardening day to clean up, organise dinner and head out into the garden with secateurs in one hand , a glass of wine in the other. A friend did suggest my plants might be nervous . I don't think so, I love my plants

I don't get folks passing by to view. we are tucked way back and much is in the back of the house. our little secret oasis.
We've got a front and back garden and the front is big compared to most of them because we're on a corner and the garden goes round the side of our house.
