You think you own whatever land you land on
The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

Going through photos last night I came across several pictures of gardens that I have planted in this home and in our previous home, where we lived for fourteen years. For the past twenty-seven years I have delighted in growing flowers and an occasional vegetable or two. And while I won't have time this spring to do the amount of gardening I would like because of the move, I will not leave Collierville without a few of my favorite plants and memories of time spent in my backyard haven.
The two flower pots on my patio represent the start of my Virginia garden, which includes yellow tulips planted last year, miniature daffodils transplanted this spring, a cluster of coreopsis, and a perennial sunflower (left pot), as well as a butterfly bush given to me by my mother planted in the middle of red dianthus (right pot) which are coming up again this year even though the seedlings I bought last year were marked "annual."
