When we moved, I didn’t bring one plant with me. It broke my heart, but we had to pare down the load.
I’m happy to say that I am no longer plant less.
Thanks to my mom and my cousin I have pots galore and have started filling them. I, actually, started my new garden in December when I snagged a key lime tree that was dying in the cold at Wal-Mart, I’ve since added spinach, cabbage, peppers, tomatoes, onions, rosemary, basil, oregano, thyme, lavender, ginger, sage, spearmint, and peppermint.
BG is my helper as always and I promised her that she could plant whatever she wanted in her portion of the garden. So far she’s chosen two pots of flowers and seeds for more. I hope that her enthusiasm for gardening continues. There is something terribly special about being able to share something I really enjoy with my daughter and know that she’s having fun as well. As a treat I bought her lilies that should bloom all summer long.
