It ain’t easy being green

tulips

but i’m working on it!  Carol and I went to Greenthumb’s GrowTogether Conference since we joined the garden on 11th street.  The garden’s been there for decades, run by a very dedicated small group. i’m not really a gardener, in fact i may even have a black thumb (still waiting for my ‘low maintenance’ paper whites to bloom. my mom’s are growing like crazy)!

anyway, it was great to be with tons of people on a saturday morning, talking about community and gardening. gardens seem to bring people together. One speaker pointed out how you may not know your next door neighbor in your building but you can belong to a garden and be a part of everything from the block association to making a community for kids and seniors,  growing organic, attracting butterflies and filtering air!

Well, gotta go, my boyfriend knows i’ll be getting up at 5 and is serenading me with his guitar so…maybe i’ll sleep in tomorrow, it is sunday after all, and if not now then when!?
