New

The second in the January Scavenger Photo Hunt series - New.

My offering for 'New' was not what I had in mind when the list for January's words were selected.  During a walk I'd asked for ideas and Himself suggested it. I'd mulled over it and wondered what I could use, may be by the time it came round there would be snowdrops or the hyacinth flowers were blossoming and I could use them..... then this happened.
I was approached by a small and forward thinking charity and offered a job. As the gardener in their beautiful walled kitchen garden.... erm yes please!

I had the invite to look around with part of the criteria being .... Bring Moss. I am not joking. An important part of the charity's ethos is being dog and family friendly. So, she and I (I was glad of her company) went and had a 'sniff around' - well she did more sniffing that I, and we liked what we saw.

It is early days, but do I like how the universe has created this safe space for Moss and I?  Yes, truly yes.

A new year, a new place to grow - in more ways than one.

  1. A place to welcome a dog to work? Ho lovely. Though of course my pup has been my co-worker since March.

    1. The walled garden is in a park where lots of dogs are walked, so the whole space is pro dog and pro family - so it is lovely

  3. Ooh, I'm envious and a job like that would be so good and being able to take Moss must be a real bonus. It looks a beautiful garden even with all that snow. Can't wait to see more as the year progresses. Thanks for sharing & it makes my post look very blah! Take care, stay safe & warm & hugs from a cool down under.

  8. What a lovely place to work in and Moss has to be there! Can't wait to see her working there.... you might have to find her a muddy patch or at least a water trough for her to wallow in. x

    1. The park is a bit muddy - time of the year, but the kitchen garden has been planned to have no bare soil apart from the raised beds, so does mean Moss (and the garden) stay clean(ish .....) 😄

  11. How exciting! It sounds perfect. More work places should allow well behaved dogs. Where I work, a couple of staff have their dogs registered as mental health promotion pets and everyone loves it when they come in for the day. I can't wait to see how the garden grows. Lulu x
