My Postage Stamp Garden
My last post - Make No Little Plans - may seem to some to be a paean to the grand and overly ambitious and even, dare I say, unobtainable....
But forgive me for that impression. I aim to correct it now.
Make No Little Plans in all that you do.
Even if you have a sloping postage stamp of a yard, crossed by a driveway, with a neighbor's giant Norway Maple (arghh!) shading half of it and another neighbor's above ground pool sitting next to it. Make a plan to level, screen and enhance and follow that plan even if it takes 20 years to achieve it.
Yep, 20 years....sometimes a vision takes a while to manifest itself.
And since we are the last on our list...others' gardens get done before ours...we have developed a great deal of patience.
But as you can see, the plan slowly began to materialize....My husband was the master builder and designer of the converted garage. It sure is nice to have such a capable partner. I wouldn't have known what to do with a building.
