Last year, I added a fence to our small side yard to increase privacy and create a backdrop for some climbers. Now, it’s been stained and I’ve added a window box, with which I’m inordinately pleased.My husband is responsible for the fact that the box is level and sturdy.
I have such plans for this one small box.
Even now, when the days are fifteen hours long, I know the dark times will come and when they do, this box will be filled with bright lights and evergreen boughs that sparkle in the snow.
For now, though, I can marvel at the joy small accomplishments bring. Sometimes, I think that’s my favorite thing about gardening.
