We live in a townhome currently with a small yard and have always wanted to not live so close to others. I guess this is what happens when you grow up in the country with no neighbors in sight and land to go on adventures and explore. Recently, came across a house with land that would have been prefect of our little family. A house not too big or too small, same with the land perfect for the girls to run on, out of the city enough, closer to work and family. I started planning in my head the garden; sweeps of large sun loving Hydrangeas and grasses with larger groups of all my beloved flowers (in comparison to what I have now which is one of each), an actual kitchen garden full of all my herbs, a veg garden to last us year long, a cold frame, a greenhouse (this I think I loved the most), apple trees that included my favorite Winter Banana and enough berry bushes planted out for my monsters to fill their bellies till content and fingers stained.
Reality set in. The owner was unwilling to workout the price, which was way over priced and still needed costly fixes. 😦 He owes nothing on it, rented it out for the past 15 years. I would have understood some, if the money was needed but it was just out of greed. The realtor stated that the owner did not care if the house sat, just cared that the price paid to him was the high or more than his asking. So now I guess we just wait until we find the actual “perfect” one for us. Until then I will keep collecting and starting seeds for our little section of veggies. But one thing has keep me thinking, which plants I would take with us, all of the plants? I could not just leave everything. I could not narrow it down but what I came up with was; Snowdrops, lilies, daylilies, hellebores, Swamp Azalea, misc. rare bulbs and random climbing rose that I no longer remember the cultivar.
So the question is which plants would you “have” to take with you if you were to move from your current home and garden?
