in our garden

When Will moved into his current abode, one of the first things we did was put together a little window garden. The two of us sat on his couch as I sketched a blueprint of our vision with a sharpened pencil, then together, we marched off to Home Depot and built two shelves to fit into the front window. We bought a couple of succulents and cut clippings from my mom’s existing herb garden, transplanting basil and oregano and rosemary. And a little garden was born. Since then, we’ve carefully added plants, watered and fertilized, pruned and transferred the fast-growing to larger pots.

Here’s one side…



…and here’s the other.



The whole area is so bright and green and alive. I can’t stop looking at it.





Isn’t this guy adorable? One day, I’ll get a hedgehog and fox to keep him company.




I am thrilled, absolutely delighted, by the result of our work. It is, in truth, a constant source of joy. When I was growing up, my mom used to say that there should be something living in every room of the house… she was right.

Also, if you’re a fan of the silverware markers (I know I am!), you can find them here.
