I Am a Gardener

For People Who Love To Dig In The Dirt and Make Things Grow 104 People

    Now I wait. ;-) Hundred of seeds are sown,

    filling up all my sunny windows. From here on out, first thing each morning I will go see if any seeds are breaking ground. wow... I can't wait. It's so intense for me to watch something so tiny as a seed, grow and breathe. Oh happy days!

    I have always been a gardener of relationships.

    Softening people, making sure their needs are met, and that they feel validated and safe, this is just how I am. I take care of lovers I have been with, nurturing the relationship and help us grow together. Meeting someone with my same skill set has been amazing. We treat...

    I never cared till my first breakdown .

    . and i had lost my job and the neighbours thoughtfully complained to my landlord that I had not cut my grass. I was fuming. I cut it with a strimmer when she had her washing out . . .hoping the bits might fly up and stick to her old pants and socks on the line. And while I...

    Every spring, we gardeners look forward to our first purchase of a plant, right?Mine was lavender, a lovely little specimen I potted up. I fetched my watering can from the basement, where I store all of my equipment, and filled it up to douse my new child. Then I set the watering...

    Winter Daydream

    I wish I could go outside and play in the dirt. Adore colorful blooms, smell sweet scents, just sit amongst them. I look out my window, seeing all I could be doing. Preparing for spring and all the new growth. The herb garden is totally out of hand. Must tame it down. Dug some...

    Lol I shared this one

    as I work as a gardener but all the XP's I see here are from hobbies. I've been doing it since I was 10 and started full time by 15. I had no place in school and my dad told me if I didn't go to school I'd have to pay rent and that's when I started working. I earned good money...

    Weeds

    I want to be taken care of, don't I? I want to be the garden.But, men have disappointed me. This garden has been neglected. It's been misused. It's been taken advantage of. It's been fed a diet of toxins. It's also been yelled at. And everyone knows you need to...
