Ralph and I used to plant a vegetable garden each year. Oh, I just loved to get out there and dig and weed each box. We had planted trees that I had espaliered to make a fencing separating the garden from the remainder of the yard. In the center of the that "fence" Ralph had placed an arbor for me and I planted sweetpea vines in the pretty pinks, white and lavender. Ralph planted an apple tree and set a swing bench underneath it for us.; we would sit and enjoy watching the kids play. You might find this hard to believe, but our chickens would come and sit at our feet just the way a dog or cat would do and often we picked them up and petted them, too.
You are probably wondering why I am thinking about my garden. Well, I had to run to Home Depot the other day and as I was coming out of the store I smelled the pink Jasmin and I just followed the scent.
I spent an hour and a half in the garden area and didn't even realize it.
I bought Kristen some lavender as a surprise for when came home from visiting with friends.
I looked at seed packs trying to decide which ones to plant. I kept browsing and dreaming...
I really miss my old garden but I am going start a new garden.
Have a wonderful day,
