In Search of my Mother's Garden, I Found My Own

"This very act of planting a seed in the earth
has in it to me something beautiful.
I always do it with a joy that is largely mixed with awe."
-Celia Thaxter-

  1. Lovely garden on a lovely weekend! Thanks for sharing it!!!

  2. Connie, your garden is just lovely. You must have a green thumb :). Have a great day. Madeline

  3. Your garden is so peaceful. I can't believe your basil, and that wine barrel, filled with wildflowers with the foothills in the distance. Makes me heartsick for Amador County. I miss my peach tree!

  4. I am so envious, in AZ at the moment everything is fried! And in CO, it's just a jungle, er, a forest I mean, but it IS lovely & green up there.

  5. um I would like to sit in that lovely wicker chair and bask in the fun of watching all the critters and admiring the garden. It's just plain lovely, afterwards you can offer your home made cookies and some thing nice to drink and then we will blab on for hours until the prospector just gives up and turns in for the night. A good garden and cookies can do that you know.
