Life and Death in a Garden.

S Diary Entry – This is my diary entry I found amongst my correspondence dated 4 Feb 1995.

Today I “woke up”, the sun shone and I rediscovered my garden. I thought it was utterly dead but it was just sleeping.

I wandered about in it, there is much to do. Most of my seedlings have survived in the greenhouse.  My mood lifted, the dark clouds that make me so black are slowly parting.  Is it just the long, dark English Winters that make me this way?

I felt happy in my garden with my baby kicking.  A life inside me and life peeping out of the ground all around.

When I die I hope it’s in a garden full of sunshine.
