My Mom's Garden

(post, Debra Keil)

My mom called the other day.   "Oh, by the way, I'm on YouTube."


I never know what adventure she is currently undertaking.

Her garden was featured on a local sustainable garden tour and a she starred in a short video.

She's is my idol.    She is living her dream.    She has moved away from her home of thirty-plus years to be closer to her boys (grand babies), traveled to exotic places, become a Master Gardener, taken up pottery, made a new life and new friends, and helped create a blissful garden oasis in northern Iowa.
