I read in a book some thing like you know you are a witch when..." A different rose " grow in your garden and you didn't plant it or if red geraniums grow wild... Well I can name a lot of things that grow out in my garden and I didn't plant it!!So let start these new thing "What is you and your garden growing" .
Yesterday I was waiting for a friend of mine, outside at my little front garden, and the first thing I notice was a lot of mint!! ,Mint is growing every where. Last year my sister gave a plant of mint so " I know" I put it in a container because, the plant is a runner .She runs every where. But No!!( Mint) she decided to explode seeds!!All over, and send them to my garden, so , Last year I took the plant out ,all of them and dry it in little bunches to make tea and facials and bath staff, so guess what>> she is back and is telling " Mama I'm growing here and I m not going away" . So any one needs some mint!! Let me know! Then was the Thyme ! My oh my ,she is persistent little plant. Taste really good on beans and meats .Any one needs some thyme? Let me know. So the wild roses came one day, I know !! they have deep roots and are hard to pull so I call my Honey and ask for help. "what plant he ask? The Rose; I said . " why " he ask, I told him that" she was an invited guest ". Husband said " them let her grow,she likes it here" . So she is still here and is extending her roots. Remember in Practical Magic those roses that just grow overnight ,we got them too.And no I didn't kill anybody ,no that I know.
So have you ever walk in your garden and see a plant that you didn't plant?. I always blame the Owls or other birds! they eat they poop !! I get it!!
My Garden is little but is full of live! A lizard lives there and the other day she change her outfit to a new size!! I guess she is getting bigger,needs bigger skin!So she left me the old skin right in between my roses, nice ,so I hang her skin out in front of the house and I called it a " Protection charm".
So what is in your garden?
And the princess at the flower patch! is Abby !! Little and cute. My Dogs love mom's garden too. Blessings from my garden to yours!!Let it grow.
