When you go out every morning or afternoon and review what is going on in your garden/gardens it sometimes is an “eye opening experience”! Several things you see trigger a collection of thoughts that make the reality of where you are in your life VERY EVIDENT!
Over the last several years we have continued to plant perennials, trees, shrubs in our gardens (North, South, Behind the Shop and Back of Patio). As we have aged we have bought bigger potted plants to add to the gardens BECAUSE none of us know how much longer we will live; so plant larger to get bigger, faster and see them before you die! 🙂 Now that is not depressing, just being realistic! 🙂
This time of year squirrels are digging little holes everywhere. It is VERY annoying! BUT they do this as a natural instinct to make holes for seeds of all kinds to fall into and grow and replenish their food supply and by accident keep all plants coming back every year. Take that idea to the human level, many industries replant trees routinely (pines, maple syrup trees, etc.) to keep supplies ongoing! As gardeners, we keep replanting to continue different species of flowers, trees, shrubs, etc. so that generations to come will have the wonderful experience of natures gifts!
If you have been blessed by having a garden however big or small, enjoy it everyday, share it with others, and thank “your lucky stars” that you are a part of nature and believe that passing it on to those who follow us is a joy to behold!
And MOST OF ALL, BUY BIG!!:)
