The Postage Stamp Garden

Just a year ago, i took a truckload of plants to a 34-year-old former neighbor, Kristin, who now lives in Somerville, Massachusetts--the most densely populated city in New England. Her garden area is just 12'x10'--a postage stamp of a garden.

While we were planting, several neighbors stopped to see what we were doing and to admire the baby garden.

Here's how the toddler garden looks, a year later. The rhubarb hides the foundation neatly and makes a nice backdrop for red tulips.

Alas,  Kristin's life is in transition. She and her sweetie are moving to Maine this summer, so that he can go to medical school. Good-bye sweet little garden. All things are impermanent.

Hello new garden, wherever you may be.
