When Gardeners garden it is not just plants that grow it is the gardener - Ken Druse, Garden Writer
As I write this in early May I have been thinking during the long winter about what I planted in the fall and hoping I labelled it, changes I want to make in the garden, getting the grasses cut back before they start to grow and not standing on the soil while it is still wet. I realize that what I want to do has to wait until Nature allows me to begin. I cannot rush her or make demands on her. It occurs to me I am cultivating watchfulness for when I can begin, patience to wait and trust that eventually I can begin. I think I am also learning that I may not be able to do what I had planned and hoped for and will have to make the best of whatever comes. The little pond I had hoped for this year looks as though it may have to wait until next year. Perhaps I may get some good ideas from other gardens so waiting may turn out to be a good thing.Read more...
