The Secret Garden









My father is the most talented landscape designer! Just take a few peeks at his garden that I took last week. The above photo is of some of my tomatoes (7 different types total), squash (at least 5 different types), onions (both sweet yellow and scallion), and two types of eggplant (an egg shaped white and a long skinny purple- we'll see if any of these grow). I know they are in his garden but the veggies are all mine. Or ours as he planted most of them and waters them daily. So really they are mostly his. But are there because I insisted like the toddler I really am sometimes. Ha! I bet you can guess who picked out the pink chair too. I love to sit down there and admire the church next door and the fish in the pond. All of that brink section was once solid concrete. And a few years ago he dug it all up- a major undertaking. The transformation is amazing and so worth it. It's the perfect little garden in the middle of a city.

It's absolutely perfect. Your father is a talented man. I love your choices on vegetables too. Did you get some Basil in there? It will go perfectly with your tomatoes.
I've been wanting to try a recipe with egg plant, but I don't have any good ideas. Do you have a favorite you can share?

Ooooh, this looks just blissful Miss Crocodile, that fountain is fabulous. What a pretty, pretty place to sit and while away the time! (And 7 kinds of tomatoes?!)

Your pink chair is pretty cool too!

There is something so peaceful about having a garden. Yours is lovely and the chairs are the perfect touch! I finished planting mine over the holiday weekend. I just hope to eat more from it this year than the animals ;)

Have a great week ~
