Almost Empty Nest = Full Garden

2009 008

My youngest graduates in June and turns 18 a mere 16 days later. I have been thinking a lot lately about not having kids anymore, only adults. I remember during some of their teenage years longing for this moment, yet now that it is nearly upon me I am feeling some sadness.

The SuperGarden is coming along nicely. At least the parts I have planted. I really need to get the rest in the ground. But the seedlings are doing well.

And the corn has come up. There was quite a bit of excitement when these were spotted. I may have been jumping up and down for joy or some such nonsense.

Although I can’t figure out why only the front rows are coming up and not the back.

My garden, my new child

I nurture you like a babe

Tender caring, gentle feedings

Tucked in warm and tight at night

I share with you my joy of sun

And dampen you with delight

I celebrate your growth with glee

Looking forward with anticipation to what you shall become

    Yuumy, corn! Your beautiful baby is almost all grown up!!

  3. Ahh I remember those tugging feelings. I really do enjoy my adult children though…
    Your garden looks fabulous.

  4. There is some kind of primal feeling that infects some of us. Every year I say I won’t have another garden, and every year I plant.
    Enjoy!

  5. Gosh that must be so sad and scary! I don’t know what I’d do with myself if I didn’t have someone needing my attention 24/7! Your garden is looking so nice!
