Design definition and texture in new landscape garden bed

Posted on

I’m on a roll.  Gardening is good for the soul, and for the exercise and creative outlet it provides during this stressful time.  My free time is often spent surfing the web for the perfect plant since I’ve been avoiding nurseries.  As fast as they arrive in the mail, I’m expanding garden beds to contain them!

Since the move last summer, I’ve been lonely without my recommended daily allowance of blooms.

There were a handful of hastily pre-sale planted impatiens in the front of the house, but nary a flower anywhere else.  I couldn’t even make a tiny posey for my desk.

It was sad.

Having filled the new beds that I created along the dry creek, I decided I needed some more plants.

I turned to my winter sources, searching for my favorite plants online.  I’ve slowly been planting in front of the creek above of the sidewalk.  I’ve

Definition of Kitchen by Merriam-Webster

kitch·​en | ˈki-chən How to pronounce kitchen (audio)

1 : a place (such as a room) with cooking facilities

2 : the personnel that prepares, cooks, and serves food

Did You Know?

Although a room where food is cooked is called a kitchen, the words cook and kitchen are so different that it is surprising to learn that they both come from the same source. Both words can be traced to the Latin verb coquere, meaning “to cook.” The connection between coquere and cook is easy to see, but kitchen has a more involved history. From the verb coquere came the later Latin noun coquina, meaning “a kitchen.” With some changes in pronunciation, coquina came into Old English as cycene. This became Middle English kichene and finally modern English kitchen.

Examples of kitchen in a Sentence

They want a house with a large kitchen.
