I'm ashamed of my garden. My mum passed away suddenly over eight years ago, and I took on the care and became guardian to my two younger sisters, who were 7&8 at the time. And I was only 19. My mum kept on top of the garden when she was with us, although it wasn't much she did her best. I however have not had the same passion for the garden as she did and I've really struggled to keep on top of it and looking nice. I've been battling depression for a while now and sometimes confined myself to the house when I'm not feeling 100%, my sisters don't like bringing their friends round the sit in the garden because I get anxious and worry that it's not as good as everyone else's! I work full time and do my best for my sisters, as I'm a single guardian to them.
I would love to be able to spend some quality time in my garden in the summer, but I am sick of the site of it, and stay in away from it as it makes me feel bad.
