A Day in the Garden

One of my favorite spring time traditions is the annual planting of the garden. Mr. BF and I wander the garden shop, while I ponder my color scheme for the year (Orange and purple? Pink and red?), calculate the amount of sun that reaches our small balcony (not much) and go a little crazy at the herb section (how many kinds of basil does one need, really?). We don't have much space, and everything has to grow in containers, but the annual planting always fills me with a zest for the smell of dirt and tangled, growing life. There is something so wonderful about the dead, dreary space turning into a vibrant kaleidoscope of color, after I finish all the planting I like to sit at my table and just survey my little domain!


Of course, the outfit is really all about doing the work, not looking stylish. These clothes are for gardening, not a garden party! So tomorrow, we will be back to our regularly scheduled fashion, but today is all about weekends and a motley bunch of vivid blooms.
