All year I dream of the days of May
when the sun is warm, the sky is blue, the grass is green, and the garden is all new again!
Hello CarolI have enjoyed all your gardening "secrets" so far and wonder if what I have just learned could qualify as the 15th secret?Simplify as you grow older: take out high maintenance plants (especially perennials) and replace with shrubs and grasses.These words of advice come from garden designer and writer Sydney Eddison. I just finished her book "Gardening for a Lifetime: How to Garden Wiser as you grow older". She has a replaced hip and has had eye surgery. As we all age, energy and strength diminish. Her words make a lot of sense (even though it's hard to discard plants that you've loved for many decades.)Astrid
I love your idea about listening for a secret! Very creative and find it very fun.
The garden is full of secrets isn't it? Love to hear what you find.~~Dee
