Off Again

Yay, at least for me anyway.

I think Ian is a bit disappointed.  Back in the fall!

This was taken at a J24 regatta in Barbados, I think it looks a bit like a painting.

On My Way

By the time you read this I will be on my way back to Canada, once again leaving Ian behind for 6 weeks.

Fun for me, getting to enjoy my friends, family and yay, my garden. Not fun for Ian who still has to work, oh well, someone has to do it…

Here comes the Sun

Here comes the sun, and I say, It’s all right.

Yes, it is true, I am on my way back to Barbados. Unlike the spring, I actually look forward to heading to Barbados for the winter. My garden is all tucked up, and winter is on its way.

Yes, here comes the sun!

Two Gardens, Two Countrys, One Gardener

Not that I really have two gardens, although I do have a terrace, and a balcony, and lots of pots, that counts as a garden, doesn’t it? And I am certainly in two countries, and do not have any help in the garden, (except the lawn cutting, and I only do that as I know the bylaw officer would be around if I didn’t).

Sometimes I feel stretched very thin, it would be a lot easier if my large garden was where I was most of the year, and my smaller pot garden put up with me for the other 12 weeks, but it is not to be.

Instead I come home to this,

Yikes, hard to see all my freshly applied gravel

twice a year, and spend 4-6 weeks on my hands and knees weeding. It certainly looks great when I go back to this,

where I lounge around by the pool, tee hee, and then come back to this,

again.

Now, I have even more pots as I have added a lot of herbs.

I am tired just thinking about it.

How about you? Any other two garden gardeners out there? Any gardening in two different countries like me?
