I don't have a garden of my own (serious bummer).
One day I will, I'm crossing my fingers.
So until I do I'm just going to be a garden moocher, gardening in other peoples gardens.
If you ever need anything done, you know who to ask!
This past weekend I got to do some gardening in my Great Aunt's backyard.
She needed some work done and I was more than glad to whip out my gardening gloves and "dig in"!
My Aunt could not understand why I liked getting my hands dirty.
I can still hear her saying in her adorable southern, Alabama accent,
"Oh my, I can't believe you".
"I like doing dishes...you like being in the dirt".
Ha, little does she know I love doing dishes too, but that's another story.
While working in her backyard I dug up some soil and did some cultivating.
Planted some pretty (thorny) rose bushes as well as some African Daisies.
I also transplanted, diagnosed, fertilized, and watered.
It was the perfect day to spend out in the garden.
Those few hours went by too fast.

I can't help but day dream about what my garden will be like.
I really do hope that my dream comes true one day...or at least something close to it.
