Sometimes there aren't words. Or rather, I'm not the writer skilled enough to string them together. So instead of words, travel along with me today for a tour through my cottage garden.
It's been four years since we started our gardens. Many of them were started just three years ago… and even a handful of them just one year past. Just four years ago, this entire area was grass. My gardens, and tending to them, are one of my very greatest joys. I feel it a great privilege to walk amongst the rows of blooms flowers and fragrant herbs. Many mornings, before the zoo of children awakes, I move through the gardens in my bathroom – steaming cup of coffee in hand – and fill my heart with gratitude for these moments.
For soil to tend. For hands to work that soil. And for the love of flowers that comes to life on this land.
Take the time to scroll through slowly, breathing deep, and pretend we're walking through the cottage garden together – chatting about scattered seeds and soil and sunshine, won't you?
