The home I live in is built on rock, on granite. In fact, some parts of it are actually hewn out of the rock. We do have some garden around the house, but there is also a far bit of decking because it’s a lot easier to build over the rock and add potted plants than it is to plant into the rock.
A few weeks into winter I noticed a plant growing up through a gap in between two planks on the deck – it surprised me because I know its rocky ground under there!
Every second Friday I help out at a Music and Movement program for 0- 5 years olds. Some Fridays I channel my primary school teaching days and present the program - dancing and singing and generally leaping about the place with enough enthusiasm for it to well and truly count as my exercise for the day!
