My New Twin Garden Helpers

I've been working on a little side project for the last 9 months...Garden time has been dramatically reduced this year for two very important reasons: my new babies!

In April I delivered identical twin boys, Nick and Tyler. They are loud and messy and completely adorable. I haven't done much in the garden this year--no seed planting, no weeding, no trimming back the ivy. I haven't even bought vegetable transplants.  However, I did find time last weekend to plant two new rhododendron shrubs. One of these days I might find time to photograph them instead of the boys. In the far-off future I'm looking forward to sharing my gardening hobby with the boys and growing vegetables with them. Until then I'll enjoy looking at everyone else's gardens.

Happy 2014 Gardening!


  1. Oh my I had no idea...this is excellent fabulous news...so many congrats to you and your wonderful family!! You have been missed but you have a bigger more important job now...

  2. Hooray for you! Babies are much more important than gardening. :o)

  3. Congratulations! What a fabulous reason to take a short break from gardening! I wish you and your family. Enjoy the messes... when they get to be 8, and then 18, and then 28, the messes are different and not as sweet LOL. (Snakes in the pockets of their jeans, dirty socks, and requests to borrow the car.....) Have 2 28 year olds... it does get easier.

  4. They are now 2 y old each, correct? Teach them the art of gardening and leave them a legacy of tomatoes!
