MY BEST SUMMER EVER


Early in my life I wanted to garden. Each place I lived I'd plant and the very next year some circumstance would require a move and I'd never get to see my previous year's nurturing come to fruition. I was eventually so troubled by this pattern that I simply stopped planting. Well, actually a couple of years I did plant some pots for the porch and patio, but just never trusted the process. Finally, after 20 years, I made up my mind to turn the patch of dirt called my backyard into a place I would enjoy. For my birthday I requested my husband build me two raised beds, once they were in place the fever took hold and we both went to town planting. My husband is such a gardener, hard to believe after being married for 20 years I still didn't know this about him !!! Now I have a beautiful backyard complete with roses, sage, salvia, blanket flower, sweet williams, zinnias, mexican hat, chili peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, melons and much much more.

Keep your fingers crossed, I am not planning to move !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
