My imagination gets activated during the hot summer months. Gardening is like meditation to my soul. If I have any problems at all, by the end of a day in the garden, my problems are less relevant and in some cases I’ve some solution or even forgotten about them! My charming little garden provide me with an unlimited canvas where I can add, subtract, multiply and divide plants based on colours, texture, blooming times – and even thinking ahead to how it will look like in the years to come.

I enjoy listening to children’s perspectives on life. Adults make lots of rules for kids but kids also have opinions on some of those rules – most times, they can’t express those opinions! I have raised three kids and taught elementary school kids and to be honest, for the most part, I simply applied the rules to keep order. Who wouldn’t when you are trying to manage your life, their lives and get things under control, including getting them to learn skills to be a successful adult?
