I think I've told you before I live in the city. I love to garden so years ago I decided to put a garden in my front yard because I don't have a backyard. Many buses and cars pass by every day but I like to pretend I'm out in the country. Every year I work hard to get the garden in order for the summer...most of my plants are perennials and I add a few annuals for color. I call it square inch gardening.One thing that keeps me doing it each year are the great people who stop by to tell me how much they appreciate my garden. Yesterday a gentleman walking his dog stopped and told me how he had moved into the neighborhood 7 years ago. He said he walked his dog each day and always came by my house to see what was in bloom each week. He called it a little oasis in the city. Made me feel good to know that people really do appreciate the effort I put into my yard each year.
probably never have a bigger space to garden in but that doesn't matter because all it takes is a little dirt and a few plants ... and I am happy.
