One of my Mother’s Day traditions is to spend time in the garden. It feels almost decadent to have a full day of unstructured time where I can work with my hands in the fresh air. And last Sunday, the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for such a thing.
We went to the gardening center and picked out flowers and vegetables
Then I turned over the dirt in the raised-bed garden that my husband dug last year
then I added some peat and manure
and I mixed it all until it was evenly-blended
And here is my raised-bed garden, complete with veggies and shade plants. In the background, you can see a flower bed where my husband planted the colorful flowers in the first photo.
