behind the garden door

{Behind this door a garden sleeps}

Writing about our efforts to build a garden each summer with our children might come across as many things: ambitious, goody-two-shoes, cute.

But for us it's about remembering a teacher our children were too young or didn't have the chance to know. It's planting and growing the lessons she gave her children to give their children.

And this weekend, as we celebrate Mother's Day, we'll do just that.
