s I write, snow is falling outside my Maine window and indoors, all around me, half a hundred garden catalogues are in bloom. Katharine S. White
…dreamed of having a little garden surrounded by a picket fence, so I could grow gladiolus and roses in front of it, put some cleome in the corners to peek over the top, plant a little salad garden inside and surround it all with nepeta (cat mint), johnny jump-ups, lemon thyme, basil and tomatoes. So I drew it out on paper (I didn’t want it to be too big) and read garden books and looked at garden magazines to decide what I would plant.
nd then one day…
ust thought you might want to start a dream of your own…it’s the right time to do it! I love kitchen gardens near the door, where flowers and vegetables are all mixed together…a rose tree, or a lemon tree in the middle is nice; so is a bird bath! Plan for a little bench out there; plant organic salad greens and herbs, foxgloves, or a garden with all white flowers, it’s all yours to dream. Birds and bees will love you.
