Survival through Expression

I wrote this piece for one of the best websites on the internet and it was posted yesterday. I feel so honoured so have been allowed to write my story and have it so well received by the world. I have been rather ill and so I am sorry, things are going nuts (in a good way) with the garden and the allotment and I promise to get you all caught up as soon as I can. But for now I thought maybe you'd like to learn a little more about me as a person, not simply an allotmenteer :)

I don't want to post the whole piece here as Amanda (at Kind Over Matter) deserves all the visitors and she has been so incredibly kind to me.

Here's one thing that has been going on in the garden - we got a Chimenea and we love it! There are also new plants and art! Oh boy :D
Summer feels like it's coming
Love all the little tea lights we have (the tall ones in the background are Jo Alexander ones) in the garden, the perfect atmosphere for friends over, drinking wine and sitting round the fire :)


  1. Dear Carrie,
    I just read your post over at KOM, and it is wonderful!!!! I left a comment over there :)
    Love you sweetheart! :)

  2. Your garden is looking beautiful Carrie. Just read your piece at Kind Over Matter; it is wonderful. Thank you for sharing this, it is inspirational and uplifting, something I am in need of at the moment. So thank you again.

  3. Well done on doing such a heartfelt, and reflective, post there.
    Take care, and happy gardening, Flighty xx

  4. You have a great gift with words - your story unfolds from heart to heart. May your weather be kind, so you can enjoy your garden!

  5. Read your article, very well written, thanks for sharing. Also love the photos of the garden in the sun. I'm loving the sun too, it makes everything feel so much better and brings everything to life.
