My friend reminded me of ME a few years ago before The cupcake lady and Farmer Joe met and came to live in the WhiteCottage.
The things is a few years ago I knew what I liked and what I wanted I had a vision but I didn't know how to put all these things together. I remember when I was 20 years old and I lived in my little post war house which I adored and I still adore, I had a huge garden and it had some established trees but I was dying to have a cottage garden, it was pretty difficult to grow a cottage garden when we live in a subtropical weather and I had no clue about gardening or what a garden bed was. Oh lordie!!!!
Fast forward - The Cupcake lady and Farmer Joe met and a while later we came to the WhiteCottage and VIOLA I hit the jackpot farmer Joe actually grew up on a vegetable farm and he actually knew what a garden bed was (Thank Goodness) what grows well in our climate although its a ongoing learning experience for both us our humble garden is looking promising.
As for my friend she is well ahead onto having a fantastic garden, she has the enthusiasm to make her garden an amazing place and as she told me she has Google to help her when she has a question, If Google does not answers her question she always has Farmer Joe to tell her and if she wants to know what a garden bed is well she can always ask me :)
