Finally done! The rain finally stopped long enough for me to finish getting my garden in. It isn’t a really big garden but it is just right for my husband and me and a little extra to share. I’ve got lots of veggies and a few flowers. I’m so happy. It has been some back breaking work and dirty work but it has been a labor of love. I’m still looking for my scarecrow. I think he must be hiding!
To plant a garden is to believe in the future!
Who loves a garden still his Eden keeps,
Perennial pleasures plants, and wholesome harvest reaps.
