I used to have the most magnificent garden but lately, my husband and I have been so busy with other projects.
We did not think we would have time for a full-scale garden this year.
Also, the Kansas weather has been, to say the least, odd.
Alas, we finally managed between other projects, and the strange weather to get a mini garden planted.
Our tiny garden consists of two golden cherry tomato plants, one basil plant, one rosemary plant, and one spearmint plant.
It’s not much but it’s all we really need for our own use.
I just love nature, and I love getting my hands in the dirt!
The feeling of planting alone made me so happy.
I also know how happy I will be when I go out to harvest our own herbs and veggies!
The price of one tomato plant alone is equivalent to what we would spend on one shopping trip to buy tomatoes!
I love saving money.
As my husband and I were planting I noticed something from a distance.
Out from the brush and trees at the back of our yard came a new species of tree or bush!
Not new entirely obviously but new to our yard.
I am so excited to have another flowering tree growing. I honestly do not know what it is. Perhaps it is a tree, or maybe it is a bush.
If any of you know what it is please let me know in the comments.
I would love to know how to prune it and care of it so that it continues to grow healthy.
It’s so lovely! The flowers remind me a little of a bleeding heart.
Isn’t it just beautiful!
It’s things like this that bring me so much joy in life.
Those unexpected surprises that brighten my day.
One last image to share with you …
If you look at the right side you will see where the new tree or plant is growing.
Also if you look behind and toward the left of my husband (who did not expect for me to snap a photo right then) you will see a another project.
More on that in a blog post to come in the future.
