Every garden step Suzy's nose touched the back of my bare thighs. The era before daytime mosquitoes, and gardening in shorts.
I'm good at camping. It's all about delegation & knowing your own job. My job is to be charming, read Jane Austen, drink champagne, walk from Edisto to Edingsville at low tide, ride my bike, play in the water, eat a delicious dinner of vegetables grown on the island & seafood caught in the morning, and always-always-always be with Suzy.
Suzy loved lake life better than the beach. Her little sidekick Taz & her mom Chui Chui, above. The ride home was always the same, sound asleep. I can still smell those rides.
Happiest girls in the world, above.
Time does not heal all wounds.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Suzy taught me a lot about gardening with dogs. Virginia Hendrick, a client, had a dog who was a RUNNER. Her dog completed my gardening with dogs education! As proof, her garden was chosen for the cover of a book. And her dog did not destroy it.
Content in a Cottage has a woman & dog love affair story running thru it. A lucky woman.
