Gabe's Garden in the Snow
On Sunday, the day after Shannon and I got the rock ring in place, the snows of winter returned. But I’m more in tune with the seasons now: I knew that the ground was still soft, so I jumped at the chance to do more digging when Gabe went down for a nap.
Chris took some photos of me on the sly, the cheeky monkey.
It doesn’t look like much, but it is: a smaller round bed attached to the larger one, this one dug down deep in order to give the new shrub a boost. Serviveberry will be planted in this ring, and the branches will be trained up and over the little circle to form a kid-sized fort.
I’m glad I dug when I did!
