Garden Love on Valentine's Day

As I write this post the snow, sleet and torrential rain have closed the schools for another day and the white stuff on the ground is just getting thicker and icier. My family is warm at home enjoying the day off while I am staring longingly at my garden trying to remember what it looked like when it was green and alive.

I miss my garden. I miss working in the soil and caring for my plants.I miss the wonder I feel each year as the seeds break through the earth, the flowers turn to fruit and the roots swell and turn into dinner. I love my garden and the contentment it gives me.

In recognition of my garden on this Valentine's Day, here are some of my favorite photos from last year. 


The love of gardening is a seed that once sown never dies.
-  Gertrude Jekyll

Spring - hurry this way and bring a perfect summer with you!

Happy Valentines Day and if you can, do something nice for your garden today.

  1. Once again, I LOVE your photos! They almost made me cry today. We are having our third day of snow, and you can no longer see the two foot fence around my garden!! It could be worse, it could have been sleet and ice and I'll take the snow over that any day!
