Gardening on the Brain
Have to toot my own horn a bit…I just got two new pieces published in the latest edition of the Wildwood Literary Review, a little publication out of Nevada County. Marie’s Garden is a tribute to my wonderful mother, the late Marie Johnston Toy, who loved her garden—even though the idea of landscape design and execution is a bit different for a military wife. I enjoy gardening as well—the whole zen of the experience—but I didn’t inherit my mom’s consistency. I tend to go at it in spits and spurts—kind of like my writing... Top 21 Ways You Know You’re Gardening Too Much is just a riff on going obsessive—something I know a lot about. Come to think of it, I did get that from my mom.
