... and "I" was even surprised at how much things have changed in the past 5 years. It has truly been a labor of love. I saw the potential in this spot of land even then.
Now let's fast forward through a lot of sweat and aching muscles to 2010.....
This photo was taken last May when the world was fresh and wearing new green clothes. You can't see the spring house in the second photo, it is directly to your left here.
As my garden has grown, I have grown. I have learned many lessons such as: sometimes a propagated stick (when given some years) rewards you with a feeeling you don't get when you just buy that plant, some plants just don't like my garden no matter what, that your brain makes plans that are usually rough on the rest of the body (in those times keep ibuprofen handy), there will always be a weed to pull so sit on those benches and swings and appreciate your hard work!
Here's looking forward to a good growing season in 2011.. and shaping our own patches of land to reflect who WE are.
