A garden where memories grow

I have recently had this old tractor seat cemented into a sunny sheltered spot with a lovely view of the river.

Dad's old tractor lives on in my garden

Dad's old tractor lives on in my garden

It came from the farm at Wesley Vale and was from one of Dad’s old tractors and so when I glance at it, I see him in my mind’s eye with his old sportscoat recycled as a farm coat, hat with the top out of it and pipe in mouth setting out for a days’ work. One of the things I like about creating a garden is being able to incorporate plants and things that have been given to me or remind me of people or occasions. So I have dad’s seat, Sophie’s she oak, Pip’s miniature iris, …what next?
