Corner View~Garden

Gardens are so beautiful. Full of colorful plants full of life. Sunlight shining on the leaves.
My mom is a serious gardener. She grows all kinds of herbs! Mint, rosemary, and a whole bunch of others. She grows all kinds of basil. Especially tulsi. Tulsi is an Indian type of basil. In India, tulsi is considered sacred. It is used for healing. Well, since my mom is constantly out in the garden, she's constantly eating tulsi. One time, she was out there, bending over, talking on the phone, and eating tulsi. Well that was a big mistake. All of a sudden the air was filled with: "Cough, cough, hack, hack!!!"
My mom was choking! She had accidentally leaned the wrong way, and now she was choking on tulsi! Well the rest of the story is not very pretty, because for the next 20 minutes, my mom was coughing up tulsi! I was a little scared. She eventually cleared her lungs, but it was a pretty close call. Well, here's my mom, the tulsi hacking lady's blog.

I'll show you some pretty pictures that my sister, Skylar took of a garden:

p.s.  Don't worry, my mom allowed me to write this. She has a very good sense of humor.

  3. Owh, I was already wondering if your mom knew about this post. But clearly she has a good sense of humour indeed. While reading I got a bit be honest. My imagination took me away, or maybe it was your writing skill that took Anyway, all is well!
