When summer comes along...and hurray it's finally here (though I'm waiting for the clouds to burn off this afternoon)...I can't help but think about my Uncle Leonard's garden- it's like its own Seattle Farmer's Market- I love it!
About a month ago my Mom, Wesley and I went for a little visit. I've been visiting this very home and garden since I was born and I remember visiting my Great Grandma Sophie, who passed away at 96 I believe. She used to call me Helen...actually she called most people Helen (one of her daughters names) and ask me to rub her back. I don't remember much about her but the thought of that makes me chuckle. How grand to live to be such a ripe old age, great-grandchildren at your feet...an amazing garden out your window with plenty of produce to eat and flowers to enjoy!
This would be a dream for me...living in the city AND having a huge garden- maybe someday!
