I returned home the other night from a 6-mile walk to find Maurice waiting for me on the porch. I’ve been avoiding him—living my busier and healthier life—and I’ve been trying really hard not to think about what I am going to have to do soon.
Since my health is of the utmost importance, I’ve decided it’s best to sell the house during the divorce process. This means that my garden will go too. When I first moved in, I always used to joke that the house just happened to be in my garden. I wish I could separate the two, but that’s not possible. The garden will go with me in other ways.
So now begins the difficult process of choosing what I cannot leave behind and it is so odd to pick what seem like favorites—but they really aren’t. It feels more like I am picking the plants that define my garden style, and I’m finding that quite interesting. Many of the plants I want to take with me in containers are not at all the showiest things. But maybe that’s because as a seed hoarder, I know the potential of little tiny seeds and something tells me that if I work hard enough I will have a larger blank canvas waiting for me in my future.
So let me know, what plant would you take with you and why? I am actually really curious, and to be honest, it would be nice to hear from others right now…
|Damask rose. I will be taking one of these with me.|
