for me cherished is not an object. it is a place. my mother and grandmother both were gardeners. they introduced me to the garden and set me loose to learn and revel. many things have grown here in the garden. there were vegetables and fruits of many kinds. these days it is daylilies, daylilies, and daylilies. they are a window into the creative force of nature. a window anyone can open and explore. they are one of the simplest plants to grow and to raise your own seeds. one year later you can see your very own flowers. mother nature’s flowers still, and flowers you have nudged in one direction or another.
here are some flowers the work of other gardeners. flowers that were planted here and helped me start this journey…
and these are some of the seeds that were planted and grown here… seeds where i had a small say, a nudge, in a new direction.
i can remember those gardens still. and i can barely imagine what i will find here in this garden.
