My wife and I keep expanding our garden areas. One is for blueberries and vegetables (in the back) and the other three are for Roses mixed with perennials and some other bushes like hydrangeas and gardenias and a beautiful crab apple. I put in a stone path with a bench under the tree on one end and an arbor with roses climbing on each side on the other.

I love the way being in the garden calms and refreshes me. Every evening my wife and I "take a turn about the garden". It sounds like something from Jane Austin--but that’s ok with me. It’s nice to be able to do something we love and to do it together. When I’m in garden, I feel close to God and His creation.

My favorite growing things are things that smell.
