Weekly Photo Challenge: Achievement

This was my first attempt at an enclosed garden in my backyard…and it turned out to be an achievement that I am quite proud of!

The garden is at rest right now, but I learned a lot from this adventure, and I’m really looking forward to next season.

 

Take a look at what the rest of the world has been up to.  More amazing achievements can be found here!

32 years and counting! I like to think that holding hands, might just be one of the secrets to our success! 🙂

2. A symbol of two sisters, and a reminder of how their lives entwined with mine. They are gone now, but I will never forget how their lives touched mine.
