Love Looks Like...



Love looks like a blossom, green leaves, a weathered stump, like a rambling garden, a bit gone to seed. A garden for the birds, where managing weeds is done by the chickens and goats, and one is delighted by whatever pops up.

  1. I love those leaves! They look like land-bound lily pads! And the weathered stump... swoon. I love the textures and patterns made by the cracks and weathering!

  2. I am sure we could get nasturtiums going in your garden, too... in fact, I wouldn't be surprised to find them there already! They do look like lily pads... can't you see our girls playing fairies, and such, with their dolls in the flowers?

    1. Garden? I have a garden. ;) No, sadly, I don't. But, I'd like to work towards one.

      And yes, I can see our girls doing just that! Makes me smile to think of it!...

    2. Sorry. I know you are living with some frustrating limitations. I wonder if you could plant a half barrel where they took out that shrub? A lot of "garden" can fit in those barrels.

    3. Oh! I like that idea! I'd love to do some 1/2 barrels... I've got several spots. Mind racing with ideas and plottings... ;)

  3. Nasturtiums are edible for humans, too. I'm sure you know that already. I've never actually tried them, but they do look pretty on a salad. Chickens get excited over the smallest things!

    1. They are... and I wish I could say "I like their flavor." My children used to eat them, but I find them too peppery... a bit like a radish.
