Bill is my 90-year-old friend from my morning exercise class. Mixed in with our exercise routine are quick conversations about gardening, a shared interest. His retirement home is just across the street from the gym, so this morning we walked over after class and he showed me his two garden beds in the community’s small garden area. It is, of course, very different for Bill from the 5 acres he used to live on with forest and gardens to tend. But I’m glad he is still gardening. His peas are beautiful and he sent me home with some wonderful Red Romaine lettuce for my lunch. The veggies were in one of his two raised bed boxes. The other one was filled to overflowing with his favorite flower: California Poppies. They were beautiful!
