Having a Break

December 16, 2016

in Editorial


Hi everyone. I bet you’re all upset and worried because you haven’t seen a thinkingardens post for a while. “What will we think about?” I hear you cry.

We’re all daft like this, us bloggers – think the world will fall apart if we have a break. Well, I’m going to have one. I’ve worked hard.

We opened the garden every Sunday last summer, and had coach parties visit from all over the world.

With help from a whole load of you, I got regular posts up here. Most popular is still I’m not renewing my RHS membership, by Julianne Porter, which wasn’t even published this year. It seems to be read by someone new every day.

And I wrote a book:

You can pre-order it on Amazon (don’t be confused by their cover, it isn’t real) but if I were you, I’d wait for the reviews.

That’s quite a bit to be going on with, so I’m off for a while. Apologies for those of you waiting to see your pieces published. See you sometime in the new year!

Love, Anne.

(and that’s an order)

O – and the next favourite pieces were:

Colour by Nigel Dunnett

Re-imagining Nature reviewed by James Golden

A very merry Christmas to you and Charles, Anne. Hope you have a break that brings you back refreshed and eager for more. If you’d like The Deckchair Gardener reviewed on Weeding the Web, let me know.

Thank you Ann, and a happy Christmas to you. And I’m sure I will be – it’s good company for those of us out in the sticks. Xxx

Have a lovely winter rest! I tell my garden club audiences not to work in their gardens in December and January if they can help it and even the keenest gardeners are relieved to hear it is OK to have a break.

Quite right! xx

I started a break in July. Interrupted but then restarted in October. Will get round to ending the break sometime. Maybe. I wonder, though, will your break end suddenly when you discover that Charles’ hit rate is riding higher than yours? A local shop is trying to offload 3-foot-tall plastic gnomes for a fiver. Would you like one?

Re gnome – I think not, thanks, I’ll stick with my foot high Golden Gnome.

And as for Charles – well, he tries hard, but hey…..

Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.

Thank you, Bill, and to you and yours. Xxx
