If I had my druthers....

If I had my druthers....

 

 

1/ I’d have these fantastic State Fair horses galloping across my front yard.

 

 

2/ These enormous spiders — I think it’s an orb spider? — would not build their giant webs where I walk smack into them, and the spider would not take refuge on my shoulder.

 

 

3/ Potato vines would have these lovely little blossoms all summer long.

 

 

4/ We could eat unsprayed apples without worrying about consuming some unwanted wormy protein.

 

 

5/ Tomato season would not climax in picking 50 cherry tomatoes at a time but would extend gently into October, November and December.... and maybe forever.

How about you? If you had your druthers, what would you ask for in the garden?
