it is a good thing that I don't have to grow what we eat,
I really do love those big trees,
I won't be able to grow much, with those really big trees.
I like coming home where it is quiet and earthy.
There are not too many things in this life more earthy than huge trees. Our back yard is quiet, with patches of shade, beautiful flowers, lots of birds and other cute critters. On the gardening side of things, the yard has too much shade to grow much. On the living side of things, the yard has so much shade it is serene and I enjoy coming home.
These beautiful bushes, bloom in order, the pale pink one is first, then the dark pink and finally the purple one.
I won't be sharing a post about how many quarts of tomatoes I put up this year, unless I bought them from the farmers market. Or how the chard is on it's 5th cutting, or the pea shoots are just right to harvest and stir fry for dinner. Because I cannot grow those things, with this much shade.
No in the coming weeks, I will be pulling lots of weeds, picking a few berries and hunting up a sunny location for those sorry rhubarb plants! Oh, and relaxing a bit in this comfy spot.
And you know, all of this is really OK.
As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop and visit.
I appreciate your time and your comments.
