Downsizing without tears
Thursday 27th March 2014
Downsizing - giving up a large garden in which you have invested years of care and starting again on a smaller site - is something Helen had to do suddenly and reluctantly, and, despite the initial sadness and fear, she found it surprisingly satisfying. Taking few plants with her, and starting from scratch, she found that her years of gardening experience helped her to transform a small and scruffy plot into a satisfying space in which to spend her dotage. Helen’s talk will be illustrated with photographs taken by Jonathan Buckley.
