I can understand being excited about a new project and then getting home and realizing that there just isn't the time for one more project.
Luckily, a new gardener skated into the adopt-a-plot family! Jennifer was taking in the park on her roller blades when we started talking about the park, the gardens and how she had once had a large garden and missed having a place to garden. The more we talked the more our stories sounded so much alike. I knew she would be happy at the park and was hoping she would be the one to call or send an email to make the official ask for a garden.
Long story short, Jennifer now has my first garden! I did fine with this little garden gem but it was always just fine. That is the second reason I am thrilled to have Jennifer at the park; the first being it is great fun running into her and hanging out together. She was able to see the garden with fresh eyes and with a simple rearrangement of the stones and flowers the garden is beyond charming. It is fresh, happy, and welcoming!
