Garden Memories

Sometimes when I am working in my garden, I can't help but become nostalgic for the things I left behind in Elizabeth. Not so much the house...it was never really mine. But the gardens I created were my own works of art. I put so much thought in picking out just the right colors and sizes of new plants to fit in with the existing ones. I loved going out there every morning and seeing what new surprises had surfaced, and it was my favorite place to be in the evening. I miss it...

"The main purpose of a garden is to give its owner the best and highest kind of earthly pleasure."
