I just had such a pleasant surprise!
Some things in life bring joy to my heart.
Gardening is one of those things.
I definately don't have a green thumb,
it's somewhere between green and brown.
Patience has been my biggest enemy,
followed by the lack of plant knowledge.
But I love the act of gardening
as much as the plants themselves.
We left a much smaller house a few years ago.
We had lived there 12 years, plenty of time to aquire a fairly
extensive garden both in variety and in growth.
The back-yard was in two levels seperated by a small wall.
I talked my husband into putting a picket fence
and gate around the upper yard,
which was soon dubbed "The Secret Garden"
My current yard will never have a "secret garden"
but I've planted a few things here and there.
The plantings have been small and unassuming so far.
The Rosa Banks I planted 3 years ago
by the gate bloomed for the first time!
I just had to share my joy!
Have a Happy Friday Ya'll!
