I am going to have to add a new blog to my blogroll today. It's called Growing Gardens for Palestine. That's combining 2 of my favorite topics! When I get stressed out from life here, I always find that my garden calms me down. Or at least looking at how much work there always needs to be done distracts me. Unfortunately, its not looking so great right now, because there is a ton of weeding to be done. So I will share these pictures to cheer me up and remind me what it can look like. These are from 2 summers ago.
This is my back yard,
and this is the back door.
The hollyhocks were huge that year, but I only had a few. Now I have them sprouting all over the place. Who knew they are practically weeds? I built all the rock walls. When life gives you lots of rocks..... build rock walls.
And this is in front of my house. "Where flowers bloom, so does hope."
