The idea of moving on from a garden is one of those things that I would rather chose to not think about. Thankfully, these thoughts aren’t something I have to deal with right now — and I am grateful, mostly because I am not ready to be done with my piece of land. The thought of leaving a piece of land that you have poured your heart into is something that I have been forced to consider a lot lately — first was my friend Andrew’s podcast interview with my friend Lynn when she left her NH garden. Then there was Anne’s story in the latest issue of Leaf ….and now I see that Mattie and Megan (of Far out Flora) are packing up and moving to Wisconsin — which means that their beautiful and interesting succulent garden is being dismantled <kinda sad! – but looking forward to seeing their new adventures>.
If you are in the San Francisco area this weekend, you should check out their sale — lots of crazy plants, containers and garden goodies….you will surely get plants with good Karma, even though this marks the end of a personal gardening era. (check out their website for sale details)
I’m curious, have you had to leave a garden that you loved? How did you feel about it?
