Gardening

I wasn’t looking for anything serious.
Maybe a date or two a month.
Nice would do.
Then I got involved,
kneeling,
digging,
arranging and rearranging,
praying for rain,
anticipating,
hoping,
handling matters of
beauty and truth,
life and death.


Our backyard in 2002 when we first moved in was mostly wisteria and poison ivy growing wild.

Spring 2011. Nine years later.

With gardening, improvement is inevitable.

Budding irises.

The surprising lush behind the garage.

Scotch Broom.

  1. love what you’ve created, patti. you’re an artist on and off the page.

    • How good it is for me to hear this from you. Thank you, Joyce.

  2. Just like the garden at John’s old place. (And, what a nice cottage-y looking garage you have there).

    Nice to read your writing again.

    • LOL! And that garage would not be standing today if not for one strong and handsome neighbor/friend. Hey, John and the girls are coming over on Sat.

  3. wow! awesome pictures 🙂 they show some awesome detail, keep up the great work.

    • Thank you, Garden to Go. I’m eagerly waiting for spring so I can get back to gardening. I have a GrowCamp I’d like to do more with this upcoming season. Gardening rocks!!!
