What I’ve always found interesting in gardens is looking at what people choose to plant there. What they put in. What they leave out. One small choice and then another, and soon there is a mood, an atmosphere, a series of limitations, a world. ~ Helen Humphries, The Lost Garden
It’s been wet. Good for the garden; less beneficial for our roofing project and my mental health. If the weather prognosticators are right we will see a return to sunshine today though not the typical hot weather we are used to at this time of year.
It will get hot again and I’ll be forced to switch on the air conditioning all the while lamenting that I have to close the doors and miss the fresh air and birdsong. Funny how easy it can be to complain if we allow it.
Today I’m planning on taking advantage of the sunny day be heading to my community garden plot. It’s time to pull out the peas to make room for the growing squash, there are weeds to pull, and produce to harvest. All that, plus an opportunity to stroll through the garden and see what’s growing in other people’s plots.
Seems like a pretty fine way to spend a few hours.
