Friday March 2nd 2012 Tim
worked as a gardener in a number of places and in a great many different
gardens. Some of those gardens had greenhouses. Almost all
of those greenhouses were abandoned. And many of those
greenhouses were magnificent structures. Concrete foundations,
brick, graceful arches, a path down the middle, space enough to
walk a small giraffe.
I think about those
greenhouses now and place them in the category of wishfulness.
"In here, I will grow Orchids and Lady Finger Banana. And I'll have
fresh Tomato in winter." Greenhouses may indeed be beautiful
structures, places to carry dreams. Even those dreams that have been abandoned.
