Hush...the Garden's Sleeping!
I miss the flowers in my tiny side garden...I even miss all of the "chores" that are involved in tending a garden. Gardening is very therapeutic for me. I only wish I had some real land to tend to, so that I could grow some veggies in the summer, set up a little stand on my street corner & put my chilluns to work selling my reapage (is that a word?)....those two really need to start earning their keep around here.
Maybe in the next chapter of my life, I'll get that garden, along with the big ass house located somewhere coastal...I'm thinking anywhere south of Newport Beach, but north of San Diego....a boy can dream, can't he?!
2007 was pretty successful, gardening wise. The house always had a few fresh flowers throughout spring & summer. Now, the roses have all been pruned, the perennials have been cut back, and the weeds have disappeared.
The weather in L.A. has only recently turned wintery...eight days of rain...which we desperately needed. Here's what the garden looks like today...slowly waking up....like me!
