Beyond Piggling Bland's Garden Gate.

Today I was thinking about my brother Matt, as I was weeding the garden. It's New year's day here, and also the birthday of "she who is proficient at separating eggs".

Three years ago on a very hot New Years Day Matt had lunch in my garden.It was to be the very last time.

It was so hot we had to put the umbrella up over the clothes line to use it for shade.

SO I decided to make a new shady garden for eating in, beyond the gate to Piggling Bland's Garden.

Three years on, on the anniversary of that birthday lunch, i found myself weeding in the shady garden.

And thinking about that day.

In memory of Matt. 1970-2009.

Happy Birthday Sarah.


  1. Oh Jacqui that's so sad! I'm so sorry to hear you lost your brother, and he was so young too. But on a brighter note, Happy Birthday to your sister! I see she shares my name. Your garden is such a wonderful place to be. I'm trying to get ours under control, but goodness it takes ages. You must spend hours out in yours.

  2. Your garden always makes me smile xxx

  3. Looks like a Happy Birthday lunch. Well, at least you had a washing line..would have made a decent sized shade house too..we would have to sit in a row with our silly pull out line..waiting for a bus : ) How is your Mum through this time? Lots of swirling memories all mixed up a bit I imagine. Much love xox
