When we moved to live in Peyia, Cyprus, just under 15 years ago, many of our friends and family came to visit us – and still do!
As with all new homes, there was much to do but we’d been married a lot of years by the time of our move, so didn’t need any household, ‘items’ or bits as housewarming pressies- though appreciated the ones we did get!
A friend who was staying in the house, while we were back in the UK for a while, decided a great present for us, would be to start to do the garden for us; something that meant so very much to us as the garden was in effect, a huge rock and going to be a very difficult task to nuture and develop.
The work Jackie did, inspired us to get stuck into the garden: Tony actually, ‘doing’ and me, ‘supervising’. As friends came and went, anyone who wanted to give us a housewarming present, was thanked, told it wasn’t necessary BUT if they wanted to , they could simply choose a bush, shrub or flower and we’d plant it in our garden.
So The Friendship Garden began. Complete with , “Joan bush, The Nickson Rose, Jackie’s Geraniums and Bill’s Begonias!”….Now, the garden is flourishing and filled with colour and life. Mostly, it’s full of love and friendship, as befits a Peyia garden – and it’s a joy to sit in!
