What makes a garden?

I made this collage Saturday with my Girls Group:
I know it is hard to see but the idea was to collage my "perfect life." You can tell for some reason I have gardens and flowers on the brain. : )

Then I came home to this:

My very own porch garden complete with Astroturf. Yes I said Astroturf. Martin laid the Astroturf, potted all kinds of new and beautiful plants and designed the shelves to lift them into the light- all while I was gone for the afternoon. He even commissioned the girls to help a bit. Now I get to look at all of these wonderful plants when I am home. It may not be exactly what I had imagined in my "perfect life" but I'm still incredibly thankful for everything I've got.
