Looking over the broad beans and leeks, watching the girls go about their pecking, scratching and preening I honestly think I could have lost hours. Of course, I didn't as my iPhone was in my pocket and as usual it completely ruined everything. I'm back to reality with a bump.
For over a week or so I've been glued to a computer screen. Creating and updating spreadsheets, writing articles and arguing with lots of different service providers. I've recently entered the world of self-employment, creating a new business with my partner and it's meant little time for gardening. Of course, the rain and howling winds had also put pay to this, but having endured quite some time with eyes glued to my computer I needed a little time alone at the plot.
To say I've been feeling a little apathetic about gardens and gardening lately is an understatement. My mind has been solely on the business. I didn't go to RHS Cardiff, although I'm not sure I missed a great deal, I've done little at the allotment and I've done absolutely nothing in the garden. I've found myself yawning and nodding off during Gardeners' World and I don't think I've read a handful of blog posts, which I usually consume quicker than cake. But that little moment at the allotment may have just given me that little spark I needed! We'll see.
