belonging to the green lush ground

I love a June garden. After the busy activities of tillage, composting and seeding of the early spring and with a good germination, there is pause in June, gentle work of weeding, staking, watching and watering. A chance to catch one`s breath a wee little bit.

My new garden is fabulous and the soil much more fertile than I imagined. I am excited by a sense of belonging to a place with history. There is evidence of people before me in the soil that I tend ... flat slab of slate (tiles for roofs?), a stone plow, a flint knife and wonderful stones and fossils in the alluvial soil.

And now I think the old house well is much older than I thought
