Judy and Her Rag Tag Garden
I would like to have a gardener.
Someone with knees that still bend properly.
Every winter I think that I might want to be one, but then by this time of year I reconsider.
While reading Elizabeth and Her German Garden, by Elizabeth von Arnim I became a bit envious of her. She WANTED to do the gardening, but it was not allowed. They had people for that. No woman in her social position would dare to get down and dirty in a garden. It just wasn't the done thing.
I'm the mother of three grown children, and I have a son-in-law and two daughters-in-law who are gifts from God. I've been married to The Husband God Gave Me (THGGM) for 38 years. On January 1, 2006 I became "Beppe" to Jonge, who was quickly followed by Famke, Kado, Feintsje, Hertsje, and Broeder. They have real names, but these are what I call them on this blog. I've always been boring and I doubt that will change anytime soon. Because.., well.., I'm dreadfully GOOD at it!
