It sure is spring time. Everything around us is growing. It is amazing how just a little seed can turn into something so beautiful – that goes for my little seed, Audrey, and our soon-to-be fabulous garden.
I was never a gardener nor did I ever have the interest. But as a stay-at-home-mom, it gives me something to work at and get out of the house with. Of course my husband is a garden master. So when I told him I wanted to be involved in “our garden,” he has had much patience in teaching me and letting me make decisions.
The first thing I did was go buy a trendy watering can and cute gardening gloves. You have to at least look the part, right?
My sister, another garden guru, told me, “It is just like a baby.” You have to nurture and protect it. Well, I know how to do that!
And my husband and I sure do make a good team. While he was sweating away in the pouring down rain making garden beds out of his own split cedar – I made cute labels [note: add label maker to my essential ingredients to life]. Ahh, it feels like parenting!
Another plus to marrying a logger. He always gets free wood, knows what to do with it and doesn’t mind working in the rain. Handy hubbies are the best.
