There is more to my garden than the edible veg. Here is a sampling of the blooms (mostly) one might see around my garden:
And, in the realm of gardening, one must often cut blooms down. It is sad, but true. I had to trim the peonies and russian sage back, as they were blocking the sunlight one of my little squash seedlings needed. They still look beautiful, splayed out there on the grass. John ran over these peonies with the lawn mower later that evening and thoroughly enjoyed the explosion of petals that resulted.
One of the things I love about a garden is how it is always changing. New flowers budding out, leaves falling from trees, vegetables ripening. Every day there is something to discover. I must remember to share more of these little delights with you. I sometimes wonder if I am the only one that cares. Am I the only one who talks to her plants and caresses their leaves with awe and love?
Basically, plants kick ass.
