#WonderousWednesday

1. Mainly my Mom has the garden, but I did have select flowers of my own.

2. Irises are my favorite, so there‘s some of those.

3. I don‘t really read books about gardens, so I‘ll have to go with The Secret Garden.

1. I don't have a garden but I have a balcony that every year I put flowers. Also my house have plants all around. No garden when you live in a building 😩

2. I have 6 orchids. Some of them more than 5 years old! I have in my balcony something that is a small strawberry and soon I will have the first ones of the year!
3. I am not into reading about flowers or gardens. I think I have never read about the topic

1 and 2. As a kid, our family had a vegetable and flower garden. Now we mainly have random collection of flowers that have lasted through the years, such as phlox, daffodils, crocus, and Lily of the Valley. Unfortunately, the bleeding hearts didn't survive.

“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.” Oh my heart! I have loved this book my whole life and especially love revisiting it in the spring.

In the background is my little bird friend, who makes her nest in my hanging planter every year. This is her 4th spring with me.

Avanders Hey just wanted to let you know that I received my book! Thank you again for such a sweet gift!! ♥️♥️♥️ 2mo

This is one of Mrs Bookwomble's favourite childhood books, although I've never read it myself. When I saw this cover peeping out from the pile on the charity book table, I couldn't resist it, so now I may just have to read it in order to justify my purchase 😏📖

A favorite from my childhood which I've revisited fairly often! I don't recall it being so repetitive but I feel that's a frequent issue with me these days. What a fun experience actually hearing some broad Yorkshire, since I've never really known how to put a spin on it and you can only imagine what it sounds like in NewYorkese! 🤣

🌿I am going to read Secret Garden (well listen to it). I got about half of it done today. Super surprising that I never read it growing up. 🌿I don't garden but... I really wish I did. Like I love love love plants but I suck at it. Maybe I will “learn“ some day.. I have beautiful flowers outside and I am so happy they are able to take care of themselves :)🌿
