Having grown up in a house with a very small garden that we paved when our lawnmower was stolen, I now find myself the proud owner of two acres of fertile Maine land.
I am not a natural gardener, there are too many things I would rather be doing than planting bulbs or sewing seeds. I cannot resist good soup however and so do maintain the New England tradition of a pumpkin patch and every year the pumpkins get bigger and better but this is the only color I add to my plot of land.
So it is with much gusto that I give thanks to Lollychops for last week's flower pattern. Now I can crochet myself a garden and scoff at the dirt and sand of my patch of Maine.
