How to Choose the Best Potting Table.

 Through the decades my wood potting tables each rotted. 

.

Beloved says, "Call Ben, he's got some metal tables."

.

Imagine, without effort, Beloved goes pure BRILLIANCE. 

.

Life teaches letting go.  Gardens teach taking joy.

Moving into our ca. 1900 home on 5 acres I let something go, which I had to learn, should never have been left out.  

.

Myriad layers of gardening went undone, worse, frustration.  Without knowing why.

.

Gardens need a potting table.  Finally, it is written.  Landscapes need a potting table.

.

 Why do we like gardens and Nature so deeply?  Their morality is sacred, not profane.

Instant fantasy, above, seeing these potting tables.  Bring them all home, enlarging, rearranging my potting table area.

Have a potting table?  No?  Please, put your name on the list of those on the hunt.....for a metal potting table.  

.

We once knew land was here to provide for us.  "What right do we have to forget?"

 .

Potting tables are altars of thanks, and helping hands of grace.

Beloved's finished several procedures, each with anesthesia.  One hospital let me inside, another did not.  It's a terrible thing dropping off a loved one at the hospital curb, and driving away.  Terrible. 

.

He's tired, but working.  Results about the cancer blasted will take a month.

.

Had to wait 4 hours in hotel lobby last week, after a late check-out, until hospital phoned.  Took a pair of my Common Place books, plenty of reading.

.

A joy having 4 hours undiluted time to Common Place read/write.  Precious during the 'stress' of Beloved's health issues.

.

From that day/time......The garden lets us play with time.  An amusement of attraction.  Every garden is about loss, but its lesson is gain.  Between loss and gain are spirit and awe.

If you don't know  about Common Place books........you must.  Mine have become companionship as the garden, and my pets......
