I realize that I haven’t done justice to the garden of my friend Donna S. I am always so impressed whenever I walk around there. I mean, how many people do you know who live in Massachusetts that have a banana tree in their yard?? Bet you can’t name one. Well, Donna S. has a banana tree in her yard that has been well tended over the years. It comes out of the garden and goes into a green house to winter over each year, then she and her husband Don replant it in the yard once the danger of frost is gone.
She definitely has a green thumb…an admirable trait and I do love walking around and admiring the various things Donna S. has cultivated. I don't have a green thumb. I am hoping that I have a silver shutter finger though. It helps me channel my inner Georgia O’Keefe.
