The Joys of Gardening
I also designed a planter in our front yard (see above). We have deep plum shutters and much of our landscaping reflects that, so I wanted to continue the trend with the planter. My friend Jessie is an excellent flower gardener, so I looked to her for advice on what to do. I have to say, I'm happy with how it turned out!
This is probably a sentiment as old as time, but I think a garden is miraculous. I mean, really - I bought some small plants that will grow larger and yield some stuff at the end that I can eat (it looks puny now, but I'll post another photo later in the growing season). When you think about it, isn't that amazing?
So tell me - is it just me, or do all you gardeners out there feel the same way when YOU plant? I'd love to know. Maybe I'm showing my garden newbie-ness, but....hooray for growing your own food! :D
