It’s Celebrate The Small Things Day. Something I’ve achieved each week, no matter how small. If you’re interested in joining me sign up here at Vicki’s blog.
So today, I want to celebrate the dwarf lemon tree I just bought. My first tree ever. I’m going to plant it in the middle of this 7 X 15 foot garden bed in front of my writing studio, which is attached to the back of the house. Except for a brief magical spurt of Australian violets that poured in from an adjoining flower bed–I wrote about it in my memoir, Loveyoubye–I’ve thrashed about trying to decide what to plant. I wanted the perfect garden, a perennial display of flowers and all kinds of other plants that complement each other, something Sunset Magazine would clamor to photograph.
But nothing settled in my head; I just didn’t know enough about plants; I wanted something special after the Australian violets which had great meaning. And then a couple of days ago, I awoke with the idea of a dwarf lemon tree right in the middle of the garden bed. So off to the nursery I went. And here it is awaiting planting. Who knows what’s next.
