It has been so rainy here the past couple of weeks that when the sunshine comes out, I just want to celebrate by getting my hands into the earth! We have put off renovating our gardens for all of the 7 years we've lived here, because we continually have a plan for adding on to the house and subsequently re-finishing the outside somehow. I figure the gardens will be pretty well destroyed in that whole process, so I've just let the weeds take over. Well you know what? I'm no longer willing to stare at weeds! I decided we'd just weed and plant one tiny section at a time until our yard looks like the English cottage garden I've dreamed of. We started with 8 small flowering plants, and we're slowly but surely weeding one little patch at a time in our front bed to make way for one plant at a time. So far we've got 2 planted and though they're sparse, they're infinitely more beautiful than the grass and weeds previously residing there. Praise God for His beautiful botanical creations!!
