Early Summer 2017

My first summer of gardening, and I’ve fallen in love. Every time I go out to garden in my backyard, it’s a breath of life. I love to work with the plants, but for the most part, it’s the plants that do the work. I set up garden beds, prepared the Earth for them, watched intently as seeds sprouted to young saplings, but now, I just water them as the plants shoot upwards to reach the sun. These photos are an early account of my garden’s growth.
