Life at Tangly Cottage
...through the garden gate (shown first in 1995 and then in 2000).
A typical day
Early morning at Tangly Cottage: The fish in the pond demand to be fed, while the four cats watch the many frogs. In the distance, I can hear the sound of the boats chugging into the fish factory and the hammering and sawing at the boatyard. Even our winters have many mild mornings conducive to pond watching. Black lab Bertie Woofter needs his walk, so we get the newspaper and then it is time to check email.
Later, I tend one of "my" gardens...Yes, each garden belongs to a different client, but I am emotionally involved with all of them. In January, long hours of reading await, but the season is long enough to allow gardening from February through November and even in midwinter.
Year 'round the climate is mild, but there are summers and winters that bring a variety of delights to the Tangly Cottage garden.
Then and now
It started with a pond in 1994. Hard work, much love...and the result today.
...to deliver plants. See you soon!
