The Garden Is Incredibly Cozy and Everything In It Is Done with Great Love
Pathways, a sunbathing area, and a place for a nighttime bonfire (where it’s more comfortable to lie down than to sit).
“This wall with a fence is visible from the living room windows, the terrace, almost from every corner of the garden. It appeared because my neighbors had a significantly elevated plot of land. The trampoline opposite my terrace and bouncing heads were not very pleasant, so the latticed wall is our idea of seclusion. I planted climbing roses and clematis next to it, which beautifully covered it in two years.”
Along the boundaries of the plot, there is a living hedge made of thuja and yew. Over the course of a couple of years, they have created a dense green fence.
“I think almost everyone has such a beautiful childhood memory – a delicious ripe cherry picked right from the tree, fresh strawberries, peach juice dripping down the chin. I think it’s worth having our own fruits, if only to give our children similar memories.”
“I grew up in a house with a garden and was surrounded by all kinds of plants from childhood. My mom loved cultivating them and spent every free minute taking care of them. I couldn’t stand helping in the garden as a child – now it incredibly amuses me.”
“Our family consumes a large amount of vegetables and fruits. Unfortunately, our garden cannot provide us with everything. But I manage to not buy salad from April to December, and tomatoes and zucchinis from late July to November. But that’s not the main thing. Our vegetables are amazingly tasty, crispy, and sweet. I have never bought such ones in a store.”
“In my garden, you will find several currant bushes of all colors, that is, red, black, and white, American cranberries, raspberries, kamchatka berries, and quinces. From fruit trees: apple, cherry, pear, and Hungarian plum.”
“April in the garden is an incredible experience – from the seemingly hopeless brown mass, the lifeless garden transforms into bright jungles, full of colors, textures, and shapes. Watching life awaken is my favorite activity, and if I had the time, I would sit in the garden, listening to its sounds.”
“May is my favorite month in the garden – everything bursts with greenery, lilies, azaleas, and rhododendrons bloom, fruit trees, magnolias, and at the end of the month, my favorite ornamental garlics join in!”
Over the years, Martha planted many roses in the garden, totaling over a hundred. Each year, there are more and more plants in the garden – crocuses, daffodils, tulips, azaleas, and decorative garlic – blooming one after another from March to June.
