My Garden … I only Wish
Wat is your favorite thing about Spring?
I would have to say the colors and all the amazing flowers that show themselves on trees that only days before looked bare and dead. Growing up in Miami where there is no major change from winter to spring. Sure there are some flowers but for the most part things stay green and happy all year round. So the change is not as noticeable. Since moving to Georgia in February 2012 I have gotten to witness what Spring is all about. The colors, the blooms, the greens and it all makes me wish it was my garden. Or that I had a little patch of land that I could call my garden. I say it doesn’t have to be intricate but I would love to have a small pond in my garden with lotus growing in it and a few koi swimming around. It would probably have a rose bush or two and some tropical plants if I could figure out a way for them to survive what can be a pretty cold winter here in the mountains. Of course Davinia and Indiana would probably eat all the plants in my garden so I would have to make sure they weren’t toxic to dogs which means there should probably be some fruits and vegetables. They like Blueberries, carrots (but those have to be cooked first), potatoes and sweet potatoes which they would be great helpers in digging up when the time came, and maybe broccoli too. So I guess my garden couldn’t be too small if I want all these things in it plus have room to let the girls play in a yard.
Maybe I just have garden envy and be able to say that’s my garden when I hear a neighbor say have you see all the flowers blooming or vegetables growing or that cute pond.
