I have two tulips bloomings, both dark pink, and a ton more just about to open. I think I am more excited about each development in the garden this year than I ever have been. This year, I am convinced, will be the one where I fulfill my life long desire of a beautiful cottage garden, full of all the gorgeous flowers I have seen in my books. As each new leaf comes into view, and each new flower emerges, I swell with joy. Over the past ten years I have tried to advance my skills enough to get here, moving several times has interupted my progress. Which explains why I seem to have hurried to get everything done here at this house. I have been doing this for so long, and have never gotten quite this far. It is so exciting to finally see in person the idea that has been stuck in my head for so very long.
But don't get me wrong, it will probably never really be DONE... hehehe.
