Double trouble, double-time, two’s company, take two …. the world is filled with references to twosomes. This week, let’s double our pleasure and focus on things that come in twos.
Half the interest of a garden is the constant exercise of the imagination.
– Mrs. C.W. Earle, Pot-Pourri from a Surrey Garden, 1897
For this week’s seeing double challenge I choose two limes growing on a lime tree. This week I’ve been re-potting some fruit trees in my container garden, and thinking about wether I should plant some of them in the ground before the winter, or not. I love gardening, getting my hand dirty, and my mind clean. I don’t have a very big garden at the moment, sadly, but I still feel happy seeing my container garden thrive.
While tending to the little garden that I have, I started to think about all the trees I’ve planted the past ten years, and then I started to think about all the trees I’ve planted throughout my life. I have no idea how many trees I’ve planted. We are talking thousands. I’ve planted many fruit trees all over northern California these past ten years. I’ve planted trees on properties I leased, on friends properties, and in pots for container gardens; I like thinking about those trees giving their owners a bountiful harvest right about now. That makes me happy!
