So... we had a bit of a wedding!!
See, over the past couple of years, the garden and its surrounds have been the setting for a romance of sorts. It began on the bike path, my true love and I would pass each other on our respective ways to work. We started dating and I would pick a bunch of flowers from the garden on the way over to his house. A little while later he moved into my place with his kids and about the same time we combined our plots into one. We weeded, dug, planted and grew together and one romantic afternoon, last December, were down at the plot, sharing a pot of tea and checking the tomatoes when he asked me to marry him.
And so, the community garden seemed like an excellent place to celebrate our wedding. After the ceremony (at the velodrome across the road) our guests (including friends from the garden) joined us in the garden to stroll amid the veggies and sip champagne. The wind stopped blowing, the sun was shining, the flowers blooming and the corks were popping! It was a cracker of an afternoon!!
