One of the things we were really excited about when we bought our house was the outdoor space. It needed a bit of work (and there’s still lots to do), but after living on the 16th floor of an apartment building, we were grateful to have a green space to call our own. Last summer we weeded and cleaned, Toby made some raised beds from the extra bricks laying around the yard, and we planted a small container garden. And then we got distracted with work and the kids and a million other things, and the garden died from neglect.
When Toby asked me what I wanted for mother’s day this year, I told him I wanted to give the garden another shot. I wanted to buy new plants (I am not brave enough yet to try growing from seeds) and spend the day outside with him and the kids, playing in the dirt. I got my wish.
Thanks, Toby, for such a wonderful mother’s day. I can’t wait for everything to get growing.
