We have been gone 18 days. Waiting patiently for our return, the garden has sat in neglect.
I’d say, she wore it well.
Although, one needs to wade in a little closer to see it.
While gone, I longed for the garden. I worried and fretted about being away for so long. What I would come back to? This was some serious garden detox.
For the first time in years we turned off our lives and tuned into a large scale family vacation. My husband even went almost entirely wireless. With his profession being technology driven, he showed amazing restraint. I can happily say the Blackberry went away for almost the entirety of the trip. Of course the prohibitive cost was a factor too.
I had all sorts of visions in my head of what I’d be coming home to. Yet with no intervention the garden fared well. Even letting loose some surprising pops of colour for a chilly mid October day.
So where was I while all this grass was growing?
On a cruise through the Panama Canal! 16 days, across multiple oceans with the kids in tow! It was exhilarating.
We experienced amazing adventures, and captured those once in a lifetime memories!
