The Joy of Gardening

Even though I am trying to downsize a bit it's a bit hard to choose what to keep and what to get rid of. My plants are like my children and I love them all. I can't tell you the joy I get from caring for them. There are no words to describe it. It makes me happy to water them and watch them flourish. The rewards are amazing! Beautiful flowers, fruit, and the pride I get when others ooh and ahh over them :) It's too bad I can't make money off of them because I would truly enjoy what I do then!

Looks like what I thought was a cantaloupe is going to be acorn squash!

Look how big the vine is! It's growing up the fence, through between the peonies and the grill, through the peonies and down the alley between the two houses!
