There's No Place Like Home

Scribbled by Perky |

As I sit here in my mother's living room, staring out at her beautiful garden, I can't help but feel so at peace. Some people may dread that it's pouring heavily outside, but I love it. The smell of rain touching the grass, now that's something you don't get in the big city.

And with a cuppa next to my laptop, I'm truly having a much deserved "me" time.

Gosh, there really is no place like home. Or in this moment, shall I say, mom's garden? There's plenty of space in her garden that we can have a backyard party. Oh but if we had a pergola, I wouldn't mind having my wedding reception in our garden.

Mom's beautiful garden is a real testament to the hardwork she's put into it. I can't imagine watering the garden on my own (which is something she does every evening).

And it's not just having to water the plants. You also got to fertilize and trim them. It's just way too much work if you ask me.

But still, it's nice to have a garden that's tastefully done and well taken care of.

A pergola sounds great, covered with a creeper that has nice flowers and lil' light hangin just like the wedding party in MamaMia.

I love gardens and I have this dream that if I become a millionaire (please god, let that be tomorrow ... LOL!) I'd build my house with a garden right in the middle of it :D

Savante:
Use some good old TLC and fertilizer. And if all fails, go plastic ;)


Wenn:
Yes it is... although I shamelessly brag about the garden which I had zero input in ;)


Nick Phillips:
