Silver Linings: A Garden ?

I am living once again at my childhood home. Weird, yes. When I was a kid there were ten children, goats, donkeys, a horse, chickens, ducks, peacocks. We ate the lambs for Easter. My mother had a flourishing garden. There was chaos and much more. I left as soon as I could. Now I am home again, now with my daughter (20 and a college sophomore) and my son (a high school sophomore), and Mark, of course. For many years I have wanted a garden even if I have no idea what to do. Day 3 of self-isolation we have begun to feel our way forward. Long ago, when the kids were little, they liked to play a game: What would you bring to a Zombie Apocalypse. Seeds I would always say.

  1. Hi Martha. So glad you can be with your mom at this difficult time. Gardening can be very therapeutic and I’m glad you have such a good place for you and your family. Even though it might not register, please give her my love. I have such wonderful memories of all of you from back in the day.

  2. I have fond such memories of this garden and I’m glad you can use this time to breathe life into the earth! Stay well xo
