Several years ago I moved to my nan's estate and switched from balcony pot gardening to quite a different story. My aim was to bring back colour, life and more spirit to my childhood memory, grandma's thriving cottage garden. Unfortunately, it ain't a countryside garden no more, as cities have expanded, and what once was a lovely village, now is a busy, urbanized suburb of Croatia's capital, Zagreb. In the era when concrete and asphalt are taking over the world, I feel forever grateful to my parents for having decided to preserve this oasis of lush greenery. So do my cats and dogs, and guess what, so does my green thumb. A man named Karl Foerster once said '' If I'm ever reborn, I want to be a gardener - there's too much to do for one lifetime ! '' Exactly my point, buddy. Just merely looking through the window, I can't even decide which parts of garden need my attention first. By now, my loved ones have come to terms with my 'twisted' hobbies, nevertheless I always feel great joy when given the pleasure to exchange my greenthumbing experience and passion for nature and gardening with fellow-gardeners. And that's exactly what I would love to do here, after reading all the wonderful garden blogs, I decided I'd start a blog of me own too.
