A Word A Week Challenge – Garden

The ‘A Word A Week Photo Challenge‘ this week is Garden, a theme which takes me back to my Dad’s gardens as I grew up, something which he was always passionate about, constantly tending to his raised beds on a daily basis, I too seem to have inherited this fondness for green finger gardening, none more so than in my current house, which I wanted to buy after seeing its garden for the first time ‘before’ I’d even entered the house.

Dad’s current garden (pictured above) is quite a special one, as it was this year that he won the Gold Medal for the Leeds in Bloom ‘Private Summer Garden’ Category, he also picked up Gold in the ‘Disability’ category as well. Not long after this picture was taken he dug up and removed most of the plants to prepare for his Spring 2013 Garden, which he’s now currently hard at work on…

Fingers crossed it can be another Gold winning year for him.
