The Strawberry Bed

or rather the strawberry/creeping thyme/chives/decorative allium I know not the name of/rattlesnake master bed (but that's too much of a mouthful really to say) in this early May. I like this bed not just because I don't have to replant it every year but because every plant in it came by way of another gardener. I didn't plan it that way, but there's not a plant in there that wasn't originally dug out of someone else's garden or given to me as a gift. There are a million lovely things about gardening but the passing on of good things and the way that the person who shares with you is just as happy as you are has to rank close to the top of the list.
