Gertie’s Garden

After the experience of taking Grandpa and Rowan’s house apart, it was reassuring to visit ‘Valhalla’ and find that nothing had really changed in my Grandmother’s garden. It still has lots of little paths…

…odd shaped trees….

…the woodpile we used to hide behind when playing hide and seek, or when we didn’t want to come in to bed.

But best of all the gate that leads down to the landing stage, the boat, and the river.

In amongst the rest of the flowers, I found this tulip. Bravely trying to grow through a hedge. It seemed very symbolic, but I’m not sure of what.
