I have included photographs of my home and garden on this website, for two reasons.
Firstly, global warming is mentioned on numerous occasions on this website. Insects are in decline, particularly butterflies, I've noticed.
Also the weather is becoming considerably wetter, since higher temperatures enable our atmosphere to hold 7% more water. The prolonged
cloud cover is inhibiting my flowers from blooming.
Should, as seems likely, existing cars and vans be replaced by zero polluting computer driven taxi-vans, then what happens to the vehicle
parking areas on people's front gardens, and of course, garages? Many of which are too narrow to accommodate vehicles that comply with
side impact legislation. We owe it to nature, and in particular wildlife, to restore these potential
natural habitats. But that is not all. Secondly, gardening keeps gardeners fit. Well it does if you don't overdo it.
With employment being less arduous,
and the climate being warmer, we need to find ways of burning off energy, particularly in a civilisation beset by obesity.
The complexities of landscape design, coupled with the logistical problems to overcome whilst engaged upon projects in the garden,
exercise the brain. I regret that I cannot motivate myself to do physical exercises. I regard it as pointless.
However, I do like a nice garden to look at. It gives me an immense amount of satisfaction, a real sense of achievement.
Something I definitely can't say about my struggles with IT. Anyway, here are a few photos which I hope will motivate you.
And remember, if you are over sixty years or disabled, don't carry heavy loads, over 20kg, as these can prove
debilitating to legs and back, as I've found out on occasion. Good luck.
