Circus Orient Garden

I was happy  as a child seeing a circus coming to town today. Not that I like circus specifically, it is more a sort of a fiction about animals, artists, clowns bringing reminiscences from countries far away, from times far apart. It is a kind of magic, transforming all circus trucks and tents into arena full of colors and music to bring an hour of fairy tale for a single ticket. Could it be, that the same magic turned weeds from outskirts of the town into a real circus garden?  Care signore, signori cari, let the show begin! Just here, in Circus Orient, just behind the beautiful weeds garden ! Come and see the most beautiful garden,  fantastic animals, funny clowns , sweet little artists, come and believe in this reality! Believe, that even weeds are garden sometimes!! Come and see!!

I mentioned in my previous post that the weather has been glorious since I arrived. Sunshine every day, with no hint of rain – no wet Welsh weather like I had been warned about before moving here!

I’m settling in well to my new life. It was sad to say goodbye to my old one but in a bitter-sweet way. I’m working in an amazing garden and living in a beautiful part of the country – it’s been a manic few weeks but all the packing and unpacking has been worth it.
