Garden State of Mind

1. Tending to our patio nursery
2. Bikes make botanical gardens better
3. Arch ways covered in green
4. Inspiring orchid displays

Lately the place you will most likely find me at home is in the garden. Since our home-making journey began we have always tried to find time for a garden whether it be herbs crowded on a balcony or plots brimming with veggies. There has always been an insatiable desire in me to watch tiny seeds transform into crops robust and fruit bearing. Sometimes I feel it must be a Kansan predisposition- an urge too hard to fight and too engrained to question. Gardening is my zen. 

Knowing my love of plant life, Danny took us for a tour of Duke Farms last week. Once the sprawling estate of the Duke family and then botanical garden and gem of central New Jersey, it has evolved over the years into a sustainable and ecological friendly garden filled with inspiration. The expansive grounds were easily accessible by bikes rented at the garden- an idea that I loved as it made the visit feel like an adventure for the kids. It was invigorating, and when I came home I went straight to work in our little garden.
