Over the years one of the things I have done at each house Dominic and I have owned is garden. At the house we currently have, there is a side garden tucked between two retaining walls. When we moved in, I designed the layout of the plants, cleared the entire space, and planted all of the shrubs, perennials and even added statuary and a fountain.
That was only the beginning. Dominic and I spent many weekends cutting out overgrown shrubs, small trees, overgrown bushes. Then we replanted the front yard and finally the back. For the three years it took me to replant the yard, I was in gardening heaven. Unfortunately over the past few years I haven’t had the time to garden as much as I like, but I am happy when I’m up to my arms in dirt and plants.
