I don’t know that I would have pushed the “publish” button on “They Ride the Trains” had I not been under the (yes, completely self-imposed) pressure of July’s NaBloPoMo daily deadline. There have only been a few posts I have been afraid to publish and that was one of them.
“They Ride the Trains” was also my 300th post. So, yay?
On a much, much lighter note…
My mother-in-law is quite possibly one of the best gardeners in our state. Mid-summer, when both her dahlias and roses are in their full splendor, I like to wander around her backyard and glory in the thousands of blooms, bees and butterflies. It is a bit of a secret garden, and it sometimes saddens me that the public is not able to wander her rows and rows of blossoms, drunk on the scent of double delight roses and dazzled by the perfectly symmetrical origami-like visual wonders to be found in every corner.
Someday, Esperanza will come and take the photos this garden deserves. Until then, here’s my record.
Do you enjoy gardening? Are there specific gardens you enjoy touring?
