I am a garden lover. Since 6, when I was still a kid, I always watch my mother tending to her flowers and plants in our small garden at the back of our house. In the morning, she will always water the plants as well as in the afternoon. Sometimes, I volunteer to help her or if she is busy, I am the one watering the plants instead before playing in our backyard.
Fast forward fifteen years after, my mother is still a lover of plants and flowers. I moved out from my parents home three years ago and I am currently living in the city in an apartment. What I love about this apartment is that it also has a spacious garden where I can grow plants.
I am very happy when the owner said I can actually use it to have a garden. A year ago, while buying seeds and some gardening materials in the shopping mall, I stumbled upon a flyer advertising about a certain type of chair that is so perfect for gardens. It is called Adirondack chairs. When I went to the shop to take a look at the product, I immediately felt in love. It was perfect for my little garden!
The wooden material used in the chair is very beautiful. It also has carved details intricately designed in the arm chair. Also, it is very light. I can actually put in at the back of my car and I need not to have to ask the assistance of delivery men to deliver them to my home.
I immediately bought two, so when my boyfriend and I are talking over tea or coffee, we can sit there and chat all day during our rest days. Sometimes too, I bring my work at home and sit there, put my laptop on the table, and work from home as if I am just relaxing.
My friends too were stunned! When they come over in the house, they love sitting there especially during the afternoon.
They love bringing in food so we do not need to cook, especially on BBQ party nights were we are all up all night drinking and having fun.
These Adirondack chairs are really an investment. In fact, when my mother saw them, her eyes glimmered. She said I got her keen eye for details and beautiful things from her and I felt really really proud of what she told me. I also showed her my flowers and plants that I took care for over a year and she is very proud of me. I also have some plants inside the house which she absolutely adores.
When I go home in my parents house, I always see my mother’s garden and I am always inspired to do more good work for my own garden. You see, my mother is the person I look up to since I was a kid and I would love to grow like her, especially on the way she takes care of her garden.
