I do not envy the owners
of very large gardens.
The garden should fit its
owner or his or her tastes,
just as one's clothes do;
it should be neither
too large nor too small,
but just comfortable.

 Flowers and Vegetables
 from our gardens last year
 Oh how I long for fresh produce
 and the beautiful scents
 to return once again
 look at the size of that blossom
all pictures are from my gardens 2010

I was so in the mood for gardening. I even put in some plants. This morning they are all covered in snow! I am really starting to despise old man winter! Love your gardens! If I had some as beautiful as those I would be jonesing even more!
