Joan, that's a beautiful story!
Joan: I'm old enough to relate to your story. Fun to look back, but glad we don't have to live that way. I have pine trees and spread needles all over the garden. Still...... I may have mentioned before that my garden sits on the site of an old barn. Rocky (even chunks of concrete) and clay-ish (and alkaline). I've worked it for 36 seasons. Somehow, it produces most of what I want. Talk about a labor of love!
Good story, Joan, thanks! How I remember the frost on the windows - ice flowers we called them - and the ice crystals on the blankets on winter mornings - brrr! Beautiful, but I'm happy with my comfortable double glazed apartment.
