Gardening is not for the impatient. By now, most of my new plants are safely in the ground day lilies, daisies, irises and the like and after all of that hard work, how I’d love to see something in bloom! (My beloved tulips didn’t last long, sadly.)
This weekend, I was feeling particularly impatient, so I decided to go back and look at some photographs I took before I started. I may not have the luscious English garden of my dreams (and the fence is still falling apart), but it’s comforting to see how far I’ve come ¦ even if a lot of it’s due to the ivy that I didn’t actually plant myself.
