I am not deterred. When the sun shines I go from garden to garden, transplant that which seeks a new place, admire my fruit trees and spread seeds. I put a butterfly/bee garden in around a fabulous new boulder that I am sure beckons a fairy kingdom. When the rains come I work indoors trying to finish winter projects, sow seeds, play at the art table, create garden art pieces and slowly build on my cacti project. Okay, there is a bit of house work involved as well as telling the pup how sorry I am that we won't be out walking!!!
In truth I never lack from things to do, even during bad weather. I just prefer full sun and warm temps. Easy access to warm ocean waters & white sandy beach would be a huge perk!
