I've been waiting for this post for a long time. It shares the growing journey of my urban garden.
|Hubby and I in Grant Park, early Spring. We've got the idea...|
|This compost has been in development, maturing behind our home, for many, many years. We needed to pick out loads of refuse, stones and so forth before getting started.|
|This is a close-up of the compost, still laden with leaves and twigs before being broken down, as well as rocks, and other things we didn't want to be a part of the planting. Lots of juicy worms were in here, to stay!|
Broom Corn, because you know you always need a nice handmade broom around, as well as other seedlings, waiting to get planted.
|Gorgeous David Austin, Olivia Rose. This rose was selected for its name, in relation to my daughter, as much as for its beautiful scent and form.|
|Sumi-e ink on Mulberry Rice Paper Painting by Stephanie Rose Bird c. 2017. Feeling inspired by all the planting!|
