Yesterday the first wave of packing was done...they moved like white lightening and befre you knew it our house transformed into a sea of boxes. They worked so hard..I think if I had not stayed out of their way I would now be residing in a cardboard box!
So after they left I went online to chitchat with my friend a little. One of my friends is moving into a new place also..and mentioned how she would be looking forward to gardening. I laughingly replied that I was looking forward to NOT gardening and shared this photo of our new back yard
LOL..not a lot of weeding there. Then she asked what my current garden looked like and I sent this photo:
and then the tears started to flow again. It's all so stupid. I am excited to leave this home and start off again building a 'home' in our beautiful new house. Yet I looked at the picture of the garden in the Summer and I sobbed. We have had amazing parties and gatherings in this garden and it is a little bit of magic here in the city. I'm going to have to work hard on the pots for the new patio!!!
I am sure there will be more tears as the move happens. Sad ones and happy ones. Saying goodbye to the neighbours is the hardest part of all. We have been blessed with the very best.
