The Best Part of Gardening
When the weeds are under control, the voles are vanished, the flowers are deadheaded and the vines are tidy, it is time for the best part of gardening - spending time in the garden with family and friends. Last weekend was a busy time with lots of activity including five kids and three grandkids visiting to celebrate birthdays and Father's Day. Although the swimming pool gets lots of activity, the driveway is for bikes, tykes and scooters and the front lawn is the site for ball games, the back perennial garden is where my granddaughters like to hang out. Enough flowers for picking as many as you want, curves and corners for exploring and a patio for hanging out with grandpa on a warm summer day. That's what it is all about.
