My friend’s father is an avid gardener, and I will never forget what he told me in the first year I decided to tackle our garden.
His goal was to make his garden like a slow motion fireworks show. As some flowers fall out of bloom, others are coming up so that something is always in bloom. I just imagine a time lapse movie of the whole summer when I think about this, and how beautiful it would be.
Now that we are in our new place, we don’t have a garden for me to work on this year. We have to figure out the hardscape first, but that is a task I will leave for another year. For now, I am growing small things in pots, and I really enjoy seeing how the gardens are changing everyday in my new neighbourhood.
