Fourteen years ago, at a former house in the country, I started a garden. It went through many incarnations, as gardens do, but always, as a work in progress, it brought me joy.
Then I was forced to move, so I dug up dozens of beloveds -- some rare and heirloom -- and brought them to this house in the city to transplant in a kidney-shaped design at the corner of our street. That was four years ago.
The garden has been admired by neighbors and passers-by, some of whom roll down their windows to wave and ask about this flower or that.
Today, I weed-whacked the whole damn thing down to stubble, and I could not tell you why.
