A Treasure, Wild Garden and A Card

11 May

Sorting out things in the shed the other day, we came across a tray of bits and pieces that we inherited from Mum’s shed. There were some marbles, various small tools and a screwdriver set. I used one of the screwdriver bits this morning to put up a hook in our allotment shed and thought as I did so,’The last hands to touch this were my Mum’s.’

We went shopping this afternoon, proper shopping for the first time in 15 months! Going past Truro Cathedral we liked the colourful wild garden with its rotten wood home for creatures.

A card arrived in the post from a friend who had read my most recent letter in The Guardian. As she wrote inside, she hoped  that my feminist brain would would appreciate the irony of this card. I do and I love it.

    That tool kit is quite a find. And your Mum was the last one to have it in her hands. Love the garden at the Truro cathedral.

      Precious isn’t it, to think that Mum touched it last? She is often with me in the garden and down at the allotment. I have several of her tools in our little sentry shed to us down there. 🙂
