I like dirt..

I'm longing for a garden of my own, with all the new growth of spring around. Lamb's ear, forsythia, pansies, snapdragons. I want to have my own earth to turn and plant and watch. I want to see things push upward each year and I want to tend my own space. Someday I'll have a house of my own and land to dig my fingers into. For now, I have been satisfying myself with things that grow in pots. I have a lovely topiary azalea, and pothos. A big leafy green tropical. A pot of ivy. On my kitchen windowsill, I've put rosemary, spearmint, thyme, and sage.
