this has been a different spring summer gardening time for me.
my days have usually been filled with digging in the dirt, reorganizing this and that.
this year i had to table that energy and make changes in my plans,.
depending on others became my mantra.
it was a race to find the patience.
tasks usually completed in spring were not accomplished
finally, today, on an august hot humid drippy heavy day
tugging away happened to the overflowing crevices
the pathways were laid almost twenty years ago
springtime found the crevices filled with ferns and johnny jump ups,
grass sprouted up from some seeding we had done
the pathways border a new cutting garden
leading to the back yard gardens
the cutting garden is sparse and currently has
ajuga, mondo grass, lavender, zinnias, cosmos, bells of ireland
japanese fern adds a bit of color in the midst of the green
garden benches, water baths, a touch of crocosmia
working in the gardens once again
brings thankfulness and joy
linking up to fiona's greenday
and the other beautiful touches of green around the world
