Here is a pic of my little container garden.(A few of the bloggers have seen this already). I am so proud of it! Yes, it's a miracle that Jesus rose from the dead, but the fact that my garden is still alive is pretty darn miraculous too!
My mom would be so proud...I am sure she is smiling down on it now...reminding me to water it regularly. She was a Master Gardener and worked at The Glebe House garden in Woodbury, Connecticut. This was the residence of the first Episcopal pastor in the United States. The Glebe House Garden was designed by a well known Victorian garden designer and artist named Gertrude Jekyll. Ms. Jekyll "had a profound influence on modern garden design and is widely considered the greatest gardener of the 20th century" (from the Glebe House website). My mom took meticulous care of the garden...growing hundreds of plants from seed. Mom even had an appearance in a British documentary on Gertrude Jekyll (along with Prince Charles!). Gertrude Jekyll's brother was a friend of Robert Louis Stevenson, who borrowed the family name for his famous novella.
Anjoli and I had fun decorating Easter Eggs tonight...
I hope all of you have a lovely Easter...Happy Spring!!
Lots of love,
