When I wake up on a summer morning, and look out my bedroom window, I see this little corner of my back garden. It's a bit of a mishmash today - the chairs are pushed back willy-nilly, the flowerpots still look a bit bare, that far corner of the bricks definitely needs weeding. And of course, I have a few dozen ideas for how to make it better, cleaner, prettier, more interesting. My imagination works overtime.
But that's okay. This does not have to be a fancy or stylish space - just a cozy place to sit on a sunny day. If it's warm enough, it's perfect for dinner. I feel quite lucky to have it, just as it is.
