Hope to work more in the yard this year, at the pace that is right for my health now. Began again last year, with some work and an old chair for rest. Careful about the sun, and I wear sunglasses. Our gardens are mostly perennials. These are good years.

Gardens, Time, Lessons

It is interesting to look through the archives, and see how consistent the gardens are in general. Years can vary, with rain, for example. The plants that grow now have lasted through seasons, years, decades.

I am grateful to know that when the hosta bloom, there will be more hummingbirds. And I remember the bees and goldenrod last year – we let the goldenrod fill a space in a garden by the windows in the sunroom.

For all the changes, there is new growth as hardy perennials return every year. The ferns are growing so well, in an area by the cedar fence that has seen other losses. There is a lot to learn from the gardens.
