I find small gardens extra charming. To me they seem like signs of hope because plants themselves represent hope. Why else would you take the time to water seeds, if you weren’t hopeful that they’d turn into something? Plants will grow almost anywhere. Mini gardens show that someone decided a tiny space needed some color and they took the effort to put some life into that small space. Delightful.
Recently I noticed a narrow sunflower garden in the neighborhood. The bed is only eight inches wide. But those eight inches give enough room for seeds to nestle into warm dirt, get comfy and sprout some leaves. Lots of them. They’ve brightened the neighborhood.
Space: small. Cheer: big.
