Gardening is Good

What could be better after a Sunday morning in church, than a Sunday afternoon doing things in the garden?

The wisteria is cut back, and a bit more of the garden is dug and weeded. It'll all be lovely, eventually.

Our house is weird because there's about three times as much garden in front as there is in the back. We've put a bike shed in the front, and a bit of lawn at the back.

It does mean that if we actually do any gardening, we end up outside the front of the house a lot - and that's good for meeting neighbours.

So, gardening: good exercise, mystical in the way it connects you to the earth and all that. And, in our house, it makes us sociable.
