My Garden, My Love , will soon be for sale

How do you sell a garden? Why would you sell a garden?
I thought of a blog. With photos and news of what is in bloom.

With updated notes of what I did; weeding, planting, pruning.
With detailed notes of what is in the garden.
With musings of why I planted roses with famous people's names.
Yes, I have Mr. Lincoln, JFK, Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth

This is going to be a two or three month process. Spring into summer.
The best time for my garden and when it will be the hardest to leave it.

That is why I want someone who loves to garden to be the person who buys it.
I just don't want it to fall into neglectful hands.

I absolutely loved ur post. In fact I read only part of it but i have bookmarked it and plan to come back later today. I love gardening and fell in love with ur garden right away. I just wished I were the person who bought ur previous home because I can imagine what a pleasure it would be to own a garden like that...Seems like u had a water garden too in your pond. The roses were fabulous. I hit upon your site when searching for pink jasmine and i do miss them from back home in India. I live in New Jersey and have not had success locating a pink jasmine yet :( The wisteria was awesome...The blue(campanula I think) was lovely....Ur description of ur mornings were similar to the ones I dream about...I live in a townhouse and own a small garden but would someday want to own one like urs. Do keep writing...And posting pics.

Mmmm... what a lovely piece of work!
I've just started looking after my garden six month ago (after I came back from my holiday in Bali)and in order to remember my dearest friend who pass away (I planted a plant).
When I found out that I could not stop (there is always a new project in my mind), I thought about documenting the process and post it in my homepage for my family and friends to see. I would like to copy your creativity but I doubt that my garden will be as pretty as yours. Congratulation on your piece of work!
