Luna’s Garden

I LOVE my garden!

Living in a bedsit in the middle of Camden Town, London for 12 years took it’s toll on my physical, emotional and spiritual well being. For those of you who don’t know what a bedsit is just imagine a small closet with a sink and you get the idea. Of course North London has some beautiful outdoor spaces including Regents Park, Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath, but I craved an outdoor space I could make my own. Moving to Kent has given me that opportunity and although the garden is shared with other tenets I have still been able to create a special outdoor space and make it as wildlife friendly as possible.

For the past 2 years I have entered my garden in the Kent Wildlife Trust ‘Wild About Gardens’ Awards Scheme. The scheme is open to anyone who gardens in Kent. It doesn’t matter whether you have acres and acres of land or a simple window box – what’s important is that it provides a safe place for wildlife. I am proud to say my garden has won bronze both years, but I have gold in my sights for next year!

English Country Garden
(Traditional)

How many kinds of sweet flowers grow
In an English country garden?
We’ll tell you now of some that we know,
Those we miss you’ll surely pardon.
Daffodils, Heart’s Ease and Flox,
Meadowsweet and Lady Smocks,
Gentain, Lupine and tall Hollihocks.
Roses, Foxgloves, Snowdrops, blue forget-me-nots,
In an English country garden.

How many insects come here and go
In an English country garden?
We’ll tell you now of some that we know,
Those we miss you’ll surely pardon.
Fireflies, Moths, Gnats and Bees,
Spiders climbing in the trees,
Butterflies drift in the gentle breeze,
There are snakes, Ants that sting
And other creepy things,
In an English country garden.

How many songbirds fly to and fro
In an English country garden?
We’ll tell you now of some that we know,
Those we miss you’ll surely pardon.
Bobolink, Cuckoo and Quail,
Tanager and Cardinal,
Bluebird, Lark, Thrush and Nightingale,
There is joy in the spring
When the birds begin to sing,
In an English country garden.
