We've been having lots of rain recently- which is great for the garden, but not so great for the picture taking.
I'm still on my break from the sewing machine, and have actually been working on the sweater (I've only had to rip it out once in the last week!). But I'm starting to get the itch for my next sewing project- learning to follow a pattern!
In the meantime, here are some photos of the backyard garden. I was in too much of a rush this morning to head across the street to the community plot- but things are sprouting up there as well! I think I've only killed two tomato plants so far.
I was reading Amanda's blog this morning and understanding very much her feeling of regaining that feeling of being centered and connected (both to yourself and the rest of the world around you) when you get out "in nature". Although I'm stuck in the city (and honestly--I am really a city girl), having these gardens is a great way to get in touch with that side of me on a daily basis.
Like I said, I'm really into the small, I live in the city but can still have a house with a garden thing. A girl could get used to this.
