Category - Garden and OutdoorsIncluding plants, landscapes and seasonal observations
I am not a particularly good gardener. But I do like to share my interest in gardening and the outdoors from time to time here on Endymion. It's because gardening is really one of the greatest of creative pursuits. More people really should be doing it. Combining elements of exercise, fresh air, design and composition, there is hardly any problem or difficulty in life that cannot be improved upon by a spell outside working with plants and landscape.
Walking in the countryside has similar benefits. Cares are forgotten, worries vanish. It's great for writers, too. And whether it's merely cultivating a humble window box or managing a huge estate, the spaces where we grow plants are invariably those of magic and inspiration - souces of nourishment for both body and spirit.
