How do you think this garden reflects you and your family?
We moved last year and I totally got a tiny bit of, yes, *grief* about leaving my garden. I tried to bring as many things as possible—I carried little cuttings in pots in my car during a four day trip from Nebraska to Pennsylvania. (Please don't make me tell you about the cat using one as his personal toilet 30 miles from our destination!) Needless to say, only a few things survived, but I do have a little reminder of our old home.
But God taught me a lesson with this move. Once I gave up having a real garden in our rental, which had a small deck and large cliff out the back, we purchased a home and it happened to come with some overgrown, but beautiful gardens. The gardens are tenfold what I’ve ever had in the past and every plant I bought or wanted to buy or wanted to bring along is here.
