It is always with a light heart and spring in my step that I start any list with!
I am a big fan of the list, any kind of list in fact, I run my list by lists, often I think more for the pleasure of writing them than actually needing to. There is something satisfying about a list – if it’s a list of jobs to do, you have a sense that the job is started just the writing of the list! If it’s a shopping list, you can be chivvied along by a low level sense of excitement that chocolate appears somewhere on the list!
It’s Spring, the sun is shining and it has definitely sprung, with May here, and well ensconced thoughts must predictably turn to the garden, and what better to start off with than a list and not just any list, but a list of fun in the gardens items and gadgets which could make your summer in the garden just that little bit more pleasant!
As someone for whom the Wellington Boot dance, whereby you decide whether or not finding a big fat spider with your hand is better than squishing it when your foot stamps in the welly, and spend a good five minutes dancing around with the welly upside down in your hand, randomly hitting on anything nearby in the hope of dislodging a unwelcome guest, coming across the Wellitop was a wonderful thing…
