Yes! Hooray for spring!
I have a huge garden too (with a stream and a pond), as well as a bigger than average one here - with a green-house that needs using! Splitting my life between two places means that keeping up with gardens is very difficult, and I'll be giving up the big one within a year or so. I only grow flowers, shrubs, soft fruit and herbs now, but I used to grow vegetables and had an orchard full of interesting fruit trees such as quince, medlar, walnut, fig, greengage, morello cherry, damson, crab apple, apple, pear and plum - all gone
I've kept bees, hens, guinea fowl, ducks, peafowl, dogs, goats and a donkey in the past. Now I only have two well-travelled cats. I once had whole fields and a wood, but no electric and got all my water from a spring, and fuel from the wood. That's how I'd like to live now, but it's a dream.
I agree that gardens are very therapeutic - even looking at pictures of them calms me. Humans are meant to be close to nature. If we're not, I feel we lose something deep within us.
