Back in the old days we lived in downtown Toronto on a lot that was about 25 feet wide. We lived in a three storey house, took public transit and rented a car when we wanted to get away from it all.
I enjoyed my city garden, but always wanted a bit more space to grow tomatoes and a few other things.
And then the kids were in university all of a sudden and we escaped to rural Ontario. DH took early retirement – for a few hours only- and the next day was a professor at a different university. I, on the other hand, began growing vegetables, mowing the ten acres, and growing clematis. And yes, at the age of sixty, I finally got my Ontario driver’s license.
Join me for a drive around the neighborhood!
It hasn’t been as calm as you might think, but we enjoy our new busy life!
