The gift of a plant from a gardening friend is like no other gift. It is a living memory, always changing, growing, beautiful. What a difference it makes from a plant bought at a nursery....
I am so grateful for these lavender seedlings I received yesterday from a friend who also grows roses and likes photography.
I was also shown around the garden, immaculately kept (not a weed in sight!), with many carefully pruned roses, and lots of lavender and salvias beautifully tended. I had a wonderful time!
I am looking forward to watching these lavender seedlings grow and bloom on my frequent walks through the garden, and remembering the generous gardener whose gift they are. How much joy one can get from something so simple. Thank you.
