I do believe I embarrassed her with my gushing over her hard work. But she has found a hobby she loves and an excuse to continue doing it. I will be sure to encourage her on and maybe even let her in on the passion of fellow gardeners, who receive that first seed catalog in winter with great enthusiasm. Clutching the new catalog which will be poured over and enjoyed as though it were a long letter from Mother Nature herself. A letter full of dreams, promises and new adventures.
I have sat inside with my catalogs as they slowly stream in, marking off what I may like to try new this year or consider what the children may like out of the more unique vegetables. This is when I enjoy my gardening theme books the most. The dreams of what may come to be with our parcel of dirt. Home of Frogs, Birds, toads, a few goldfish(Under some ice at the moment) and of course so many small welcomed guests who help keep our garden a whirlwind of Organic cooperation.
I have a special addition coming to our home Friday. She looks exact to someone we have missed terribly. With the last few "someones" we have had not had the best of luck. So are sticking to what we know.
