Favorite Aspect of Gardening: seeing God's beauty in seeds sprouting.

My husband and I bought our first house in Nov. 2005. Since then I have been documenting and observing our yard. I have started a vegetable garden, compost pile, and added on to existing perennial beds in the yard. I nearly killed the roses, and the bunnies have had their way with the Autumn Sedum Stonecrop. In 2007 my husband and I also had our first child, she is such a doll, very contemplative about everything/one she sees. She takes up a majority of my time when I am home, but I can't wait to teach her about the earth. She enjoys being outside and I hope that she will share my love of gardening one day. This year she will be starting Kindergarten and it seems as though it was just yesterday when we brought her home from the hospital.
