Brian was busy while I was in California, working on a “surprise” for me. When I arrived home near midnight last night, tired, cranky and complaining about the wall of humidity that struck as soon as I left the plane, I was instantly cheered by a midnight introduction to our new garden.
We’ve been talking all spring about converting the back corner of our yard into a garden. I love how the English call a yard a garden, and wanted a reason to do the same with mine. I also wanted color and cheer in our tiny yard.
I don’t know how Truffle feels about losing a third of his running space, but I love my new garden. Paired with my newly enormous lavender, it’s actually beginning to look like a garden back there.
