|random garden art: two old metal bars through wire fencing|
It's nice to get out in the garden, check on how plants are doing, check out how they're growing and what they're producing, or check if they're dying and need more attention. It might be new flours, new fruit, new leaves, new growth... exponential growth.
There is nothing clean lined or neat about my garden. It's a jungle with interesting bits of undergrowth and hidden plants, spots of garden art and favourite sitting areas. Mind you what I call garden art is random bits of stuff (maybe junk to some) that I kind of piece together to make something 'eye catching' - or just 'there', 'different'. Nothing particularly 'arty' about them.

There is also the produce which the whole family enjoys: pumpkins, olives, herbs, lemons. It's all very exciting to go out and find things are thriving or ready to enjoy. Being able to grown and eat things from the garden makes it just a little bit more special, more personal, more enjoyable. Plus the neighbours grown different things and sometimes we get to trade.

If you're a garden lover what is it about your garden and being outside that appeals to you?
