Hanging gardens

By Penny Stine


God Almighty first planted a garden. And indeed, it is the purest of human pleasures.
Francis Bacon

I took a lesson from Carol, and decided this short little entry needed an apt quote.


Legend says Nebuchandnezzar created the hanging gardens of Babylon to charm a homesick wife. While most of my garden is grounded, I’ve got one hanging pumpkin

and a couple suspended watermelons, although the weight of the watermelons dragged them back to earth over time.

They make me smile when I see them, which proves Bacon’s point.
