Sunday morning we left our home of ten years and I spent some time during those last days taking more photos of things I thought I would miss.
Some favourite flowers.
E wandering through the garden looking for something to snack on. My rose garden just beginning to bloom.
The boys playing in their "dirt pit" which they have always preferred over a sand box. (and making sure they had all their hotwheels before we left)
And my veggie garden...oh, my lovely veggie garden. :-(
But actually...we're having such a good time in this new place that we aren't missing anything at all. E had a good cry as we left the only home he's ever known and then hasn't stopped smiling since we arrived here. We've walked down to the creek; sat on the deck and watched hawks; the boys have made trails in the woods and we've picked wild roses to make garlands.
We've found lots of wild plants like raspberries, strawberries, lupin as well as loads of daisies just about to burst into bloom.
And...I know I said I would be taking a year off of gardening up here but when I went to plant the tomatoes that E and I had grown from saved seed at someone's house in town they gave me some extra squash plants...and I couldn't say "No", could I? So we wheeled up a barrow of horse muck, put some caging around to help prevent deer from getting in (am I being really naive?) and made some squash hills. And there you have it...the beginnings of a garden. ;-)
And then yesterday another friend brought me some more plants so the second she left I began to turn this sandy soiled, weed-filled area
an herbal salad bar for the deer. ;-) (really, I was already hauling the horse muck, why not put it to good use?)
I know, I know...Hello, my name is Heather and I'm a gardening addict. (but an intensely happy one nonetheless)
Life truly is good!! I feel very blessed...Very!
