Garden in Waiting

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I heard the garden

call my name

There’s chores to do

and shrubs to train

Pruning vines and roses too

There’s ever-so-much

I need to do!

But I remember

not long ago

when babies were growing

I kept them in tow

My garden was planted

and harvested late

because children grow fast

and cannot wait.

I have no regrets for lowering my standards in the garden while the kids were little.  Now they help out with some of the garden work.  Each of them had their own little plot for planting things they wanted.  Sweet memories were sown!  Do you have special garden memories from your childhood?

PS – There’s nothing like flashy flowers for warding off the winter blues! These are from our garden last year.
