Some of the things I have that belonged to my mom....her seeds. She had a shoe box full of them. I planted some of them 5 years after her passing. Amazingly they sprouted...until my dogs got into the garden and destroyed every plant. It was devastating, knowing I had a piece of my mom and I so badly wanted to keep her memory alive through these seeds. But I know that she would have found this so funny :) She had such a sense of humor about these things, and she loved my dogs. I can almost hear her say "it's just dogs being dogs"
At the time I didn't have this garden. It wasn't closed in and secured.
Now with what's left of these old seeds I will attempt once more to grow them. It's been a few more years, so I'm not certain of the outcome. If I can get just one plant out of this! :)
- Cecile's Country Garden
- I'm a Canadian now residing in Sunny Arizona since 2002. Although I've been a city girl all of my life, I've always loved the country and the laid back life it offers. My love of the Outdoors, Animals,and Gardening comes from my mom Cecile, who loved her home in the country, but sadly passed away in 2005. I promised her I would grow a garden in her name, And I finally did, five years later. One of my best memories of her is how much she loved her garden. The glow on her face when she would show me something new, always creating a life with things she loved. She loved all animals. She taught me simplicity, to enjoy the small things, and see beauty in everything. Today I find myself doing the same things she did in her garden and in life. This blog was created to keep track of my projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity. I want to share this adventure with those who can appreciate the small things, the trial and errors, the simplicity in it all, but mostly,what my mom knew how to do best,just have FUN! *This blog is dedicated to her*
