Maybe it was Chan’s recent Taste Test. Or maybe it’s the fact that I should be writing the grocery list. (I always get my best ideas when I’m supposed to be doing something else, don’t you?) Anyway, I just came up with a list of garden-related dreams/fantasies that have been banging around my head for ages. Some are totally unrealistic, some possible, and some eminently doable–provided I have the time, money, and/or ambition. One is totally out of my hands. Ah, but I can dream, can’t I?
One or more rose-covered arbors
Hardy kiwis on a pergola
Running a cut-your-own flower business
Having a garden nice enough to attract garden tours
Eliminating all invasive plants from my property
Having one or more children catch my vision for the garden, and work with me as a partner (And no, this is not a thinly disguised wish for slave labor!)
Becoming a Master Gardener
Becoming a PAID garden writer
Having a patio that ‘s actually used as a patio, and not a bike garage
A seed-starting/potting shed type area
An unheated greenhouse
Still gardening when I’m 95
And I’m sure there’s more that just haven’t broken the surface of my conscious thought. This is one post that’s sure to be updated.
How about you? Do we have any garden dreams in common? I’d like to hear what you want to accomplish some day.
