How I do my gardening

For as long as I can remember, I have loved flowers and plants. It was so when I was a child, when I grew up and had enough sight to see the bright colorful flowers, and now that I can no longer see them.

How well I remember going with my parents to stroll in the Botanical Gardens and Dad placing flowers in my hand and telling me what they were, and the tiny delicate butterflies that he would catch and gently place in the palm of my hand.

I take every opportunity to engage in my style of gardening, using pots and boxes on my balcony to do it. Mom has taught me how to do this. I group my pots by types of plants and flowers. Geraniums, impatiens, mums, and so on. I mix my colors and under the watchful eye of my mom; I carefully place my pots and boxes in specific spots.

It’s not too bad as when I had vision she taught me and now I just have to follow her instructions and retain my mental picture.

I love my balcony garden and whenever I visit my mom, I enjoy her huge rooftop garden. Ah yes! The joys of gardening!
