|This is not a portkey|
Garden idea number 5,439...
I think I will add a portkey to my garden.
A portkey, as fans of the Harry Potter books and movies know, is an ordinary object that is enchanted so that when someone touches it, it transports them to another place.
I need to decide first what the ordinary object will be.
Should my portkey be a boot? A bowl? A basket?
Next I need to decide where the portkey will transport me to.
I think my portkey will transport me to England, perhaps to one of the great flower shows like Chelsea or Hampton Court. Or may be it will take me to a famous garden or a dozen famous gardens in England?
Finally, I need to get my story straight so that when someone visits my garden and asks about the portkey, I'll be able to explain it, and then I will forbid them to touch it.
I hope one day my portkey, or some other travel method, like maybe a plane, will transport me to England. A gardener's dream...
