Spring Fever and Planting Seeds!
What is it about this time of year that makes you want to start clearing out the house and planting seeds all at the same time. Every year it's the same.

I think as you get older the desire to lighten the load gets stronger. Having watched my parents move down here to join us the amount of clearing out and getting rid of possessions was quite astounding and I felt compelled to do the same.

Flowers have not been high on my list, although I love them our garden has been battered by our eight children kicking balls playing rugby and generally causing mayhem outside.
