Do You Love Flowers, Too?

I love to garden!

There was a time this was not so.  When I was a kid, my parents had a very large garden.  My two brothers and I couldn’t do anything on the weekends or in the summer until we had helped weed in the garden.  Ugh.  I don’t know any seven year old that enjoys weeding.  I was pretty vocal in my displeasure, and, often, I was in trouble for being vocal.

But, once I became an adult and moved out of my parents home, that first spring I realized there were no fresh flowers for me to smell.  And, I missed flowers.  So, I began to garden.  I started out with tomatoes and marigold from seed.

I thought my parents and my two brothers would fall out of their chairs, in shock.  “She’s doing what?!?!”  Hahahaha!

I love it now.  I find it very peaceful and a good stress reliever.  Although, I do wish it would rain.  Our flowers need a drink.  It has been quite dry, almost like July or August.  My husband and I are seeing that, with the mild winter we had, all of our plants seem to be anywhere from six weeks to two months ahead of schedule.
