It’s all natural and organic..I love creating gardens..and as time passes, they just keep getting better! From Pole Bean Forts built and planted with my grandchildren to my youngest daughter’s wedding under the arch, with the pond and a bizzillion marigolds (year 1 of its existence) as a backdrop, to the vegetables and flowers, and the herbs I grew along the retaining wall, to the little fence I built out of bamboo, to the rock garden I created,
a dry creek bed that had every stone dug from the ground by hand, to the pad for a firepit, to the millions of seeds, the bags of mulch, the hours of work, the endless weeding, the covering and uncovering, to the flower boxes, the wildflowers dug, the baby trees, and evergreens and cedars carefully extracted from the woods, to plants I have no idea what they are (just liked how they looked or grew) and it added to the textures, to training ivy, to hauling field stone and river rock and bricks and branches, pavers and pallets, to erecting a fence, building walls, digging up roots, to teaching my children, and my grandchildren how to plant, how to harvest,
I pay homage to my Great Grandmother Vranas, my Gram, and my Mom for instilling a passion for nature and gardening that will never leave me…or them, I hope…
I’m sure at 90 I’ll be crawling on my hands and knees in dirt somewhere on this earth 🙂
Thanks for taking a walk with me..my grandchildren have grown a bit 🙂 but I think I’ll save those pictures for another day! Many blessings to you! I’ll be out in my garden if you need me…<3 Happy Spring!!!
