corner view: dream

i've got tons of dreams. well, who doesn't. not all of them are publishable though. so after browsing through my big, huge, ornate dream chest, i'm picking this one:

a garden. maybe an allotment. a dacha. that's a big dream. and has been for years. a place where i can grow my own fruit and vegetables. get my hands dirty with soil. sit in a cabin that won't quite heat up although i've fired the small oven. where i'm waiting for spring and the first signs of green. listen to the birds. read lots of books. have friends over for summer dinner with quiche made from my own fresh spinach. with a bottle of wine (or two). pick berries. and apples. where i smell autumn's coming. where i come occasionally in winter to check all is ok. and dream of spring making an appearance, all of a sudden, unexpectedly.

i know it will happen, one day.

(these pictures are not mine, but wonderful flickr finds. clicking on the links underneath the mosaic will take you there.)

see more corner views by visiting dana. usually, corner view is hosted by lovely jane, but she's off to philadelphia for a little break. wishing her a fabulous time!

Beautiful selection. I can smell the earth. I never thought I would find so much comfort as I do in gardening. Hope you'll be a gardener soon.

I had that dream once, but found that it was more work than I was willing to invest in. However, it is a yummy and peaceful dream.

that's a very good dream ('cos it's got potential to become a reality too). I have, myself, been growing basil on the balcony and it seems to work. I know, peanuts, but it's a start! :)
