Over Easter weekend we took Tom's mom to The Great Outdoors. It's a fantastic nursery on South Congress here in Austin. While we were there we came across these gorgeous Meyer Lemon trees. Tom flipped out because he is such a lemon nut. We snatched one up...but it's been sitting in the pot since then because we could not figure out where to put it where it would do well and be safe from the dogs, ahem, peeing on it.
Over the weekend Tom decided if her planted it in the middle of a pallet the dogs wouldn't be able to get to it and we could just pop boards out as it grew. Done. It looked pretty lonely out there so we decided to turn the whole thing into a little garden for Daisy. Tom's mom had given us some daisy seeds in our Easter basket, we got some varieties of daisy's from the nursery and we spent Sunday building this little garden for our girl. I was thinking I might spread some of her ashes out there until my mom reminded me that she would absolutely hate being outside and would much prefer her ashes to be right in the closet where she belongs. It made me giggle through my tears and I knew that she was right. The garden is for us.Daisy would have spent time or even have known it existed. But it will do Tom and I some good.
