Gardening Holds no Boundaries

February 13, 2012

There’s no better feeling then waking up on warm, sunny, mid-July Saturday morning and heading out for a morning of tending to the garden. It’s refreshing, unpredictable and a great form of exercise. As of late we’ve been hearing a lot about “pop-up” shops and the success they’ve been having worldwide. It was only a matter of time before the two combined to create something special.

It’s called “Guerilla gardening” and its taking the world by storm. Guerilla gardening is when unused public space, usually derelict, is used to grow a garden. The below image was to convey that regardless of it’s surroundings gardening could be used to add beauty to an otherwise colourless area.

The process of gardening dates back thousands of years and is a great method of reducing stress, exercising, expressing creativity and developing patience. As well as this a great sense of achievement can be derived from the process. So what’s your excuse? Get out there while the rains at bay and get planting, pruning, sheering and cutting!
