Are any of you out there gardeners?
The girl in this sweet book by Kevin Henkes, My Garden, grows a fantastical garden of chocolate rabbits and flowers that change color. I have no space of my own to create a garden (except for a fire escape that’s overrun by pigeons and harsh weather) but luckily, the New York Botanical Garden is just a short subway ride away.
We made a trip out a few weeks ago to catch the Monet exhibit and wow, I think I’d take these beautiful, well-kept grounds via public transportation over having a private garden in my own backyard any day. Even if it did grow chocolate rabbits.
Okay, but having my very own garden would be really cool too. I think I’d go the rock garden with succulents route. How about you?
