Happy first day of Spring!
Gardening is how I relax. It’s another form of creating and playing with colors. – Oscar de la Renta
A garden is a complex of aesthetic and plastic intentions; and the plant is, to a landscape artist, not only a plant – rare, unusual, ordinary or doomed to disappearance – but it is also a color, a shape, a volume or an arabesque in itself. – Roberto Burle Marx
Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace. – May Sarton
Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul. – Luther Burbank
In celebration of Spring, I weeded and trimmed my garden this weekend.
the “grass” (weeds, really) still needs to be cut, but as i’m allergic, my neighbor generously cuts it when he cuts his.
mulch this weekend, and then it’s finished.
and… three bags of weeds and clippings for a co-worker/friend’s compost pile.
