A few years ago I became a certified Master Gardener. After baby #5 was born I had to stop volunteering. Time is time. There just wasn't time to volunteer.
Mom and Dad have purchased a home a little over an hour from our house. It has over 6 acres. I would have to say at least 1/2 an acre is flower beds. Neglected flower beds.
Yesterday, we travelled out to their house and worked on the gardens. It was good. I learned lots in class and volunteering but nowhere near enough considering how many plants my parents actually have. It felt good to get to garden again and learn more plants.
