sarah's garden

This is Sarah's house. Isn't her garden lovely? My pictures don't do it justice, but it seemed like just the thing to show you. Sarah is a real green thumb, something I admire so much. I have no talent in the yard. I think everyone knows their strengths and weaknesses, and that's one of mine. I mean, you saw that I've already devoted two posts to my tomato plants...you can tell the whole tomato plant thing is kind of a big deal for me.

Anyway, this morning I had a woman come out from a local nursery to survey our front beds and give us ideas on what to plant. I mentioned that our big bushes were pulled out, and the space is so barren, yet even I can see that it is also full of potential! Her name is Mary (she was referred to me by Sarah) and she had all kinds of wonderful ideas about what we could do with our space. My husband was there, thankfully, because he's got a vision, too. Much better than me. I was quiet and they talked. Next week Mary will have a drawing for me that diagrams our yard and garden and suggests where to plant what. This will be something we can work on, little by little.

It's amazing how big an impact you can get in a small space!
