When we were in college the hubby and I spent a summer living in Oldenburg, Germany. It was a gorgeous city with beautiful parks and gardens everywhere. Each evening we would choose another garden to wander around while sipping rose’. It was a dream and I swore once we had a house we would have our own garden. While we are still trying to figure out how to grow beautiful, lush plants in the desert, we were lucky that our first home has a garden area that we can relax and spend our evenings in just as I had wished for.
