Garden Reflections



As I walked through the Fall garden this morning, my mind wandered back to how the garden season commenced this year. A whiff of warm Spring breezes brought forth bright green leaves and plants full of vigor, only to be ambushed by the unmerciful late frosts that rolled across the region. Several plants were lost and those that weren't had to fight throughout the whole of Summer for any moisture they could find with their fragile roots. The last two rains gave what was left of the garden a will to finish its yearly cycle. To flower and set seed. To bring forth fruit. With all that mother nature dealt out this year, I am truly happy with what remains. It is more than I could have hoped for, notwithstanding. I can now only make plans for next year's garden. I can hope for overflowing baskets of produce and profuse displays of magnificent flowers. But in the end, I will always be happy with what my garden provides.

You are absolutely right about being happy from anything that garden provides. I am young gardener and until last season I was very happy when garden was green and blooming; sad when plants were turning dormant; but this was not right! garden is also very beautiful in November when is behaves as the Mother nature has planned - and that one plan can not be changed, cos punishment for it is much too severe...
so I am totally with that thought, to be always happy with whatever the garden brings.

this season was great for me, there was enough constant rain so that i didnt have to water my lawn one time and it stayed green. also there werent any massive rain storms to flood my basement, thank goodness. and there werent any massive heatwaves to kill off any of my plants.

I just came home from my grandmas with fridge full of garden produce. It tastes so much better than Safeway.

I see you haven't been posting for awhile. I enjoyed your reflections. I wonder if you'll get my comments in your email.

I just started blogging in October, and have been quite consumed by it. I am feeling I need to take a break, even if it's just a few days, to get my house in order. I'm keeping up fairly well with my gardening, but I have clutter in my house that needs to be taken care of. My husband and I have summers off, and when it gets to be this time of year, I feel panicky about getting everything done.

Well, I just carried on, and don't even know if you'll get this! I hope things are going well for you and your garden.
