Today I had enough time to potter in the garden.
I love that word – potter.
So much of life has a tightly defined plan and we can spend our lives trying to fit all of the things that need to be done into the time available.
Sometimes the schedule can take the joy out of the task at hand.
Pottering is different, it allows us to take the time to enjoy the task.
One of my favourite places to potter is the garden. There’s always something to do in a garden. I bit of potting on here, some weeding there, some trimming over here, some rearranging around there and you feel like you’ve achieved something.
Pottering is always better when you also feel like you’ve achieved something – gardens are wonderful for a sense of achievement.
