It's a Beautiful Thing
On the back patio, another pot of short stocky, shaggy yellow sunflowers were planted. Rosemary is happy and content outside gracing the corner, close enough so I can pamper her when needed. And because in my world, a garden without herbs lacks an essential ingredient, I planted pots of parsley and dill with thyme, oregano, and lavender to follow soon.
It’s been over ten years since I last planted a garden of any kind. Oh, I’ve had pots and container grown plants, but it’s not the same. There is something about seeing those rows of sprouts breaking the earth, peeking at the world, and reaching for the heavens. A smile of satisfaction when a row is hoed and free from weeds reveals gardening pride. Picking, savoring, and putting up cans of freshly picked green beans or tomatoes offers a sense of security. Yes, to have a garden is indeed a beautiful thing.
Thank you B & P!!!
