Putting down roots

 I love reading your journey through this process and life change, since it
helps me imagine my ultimate move, (someday) from an inherited family home
for 3 generations, to Vermont or Upstate NY ( or even a bigger city if
necc!). With a glass greenhouse of bulbs, and 3 acres of gardens, sometimes
it seems totally impossible and the scope of it all paralyzes me. But as I
read your journey, I can't help but think about this actually happening to
me someday! And that maybe, it would not be all that bad.

I am curious about what you felt are the best parts about moving a garden
collection, and what the worst parts are?(beyond the ugly aspects of
physically moving everything). I guess I mean the emotional impact. Has it
been as difficult as you first thought? Or has this opened up a new world
for you? My fear is that plants sometimes keep us too rooted.
