But, my flower garden is finished!! And this morning, as I sip coffee on the back deck and gaze out at my roses, impatiens, crepe myrtles and dahlias, I know it was worth every single ache and pain.
this post a while back about how I first discovered this wonderful botanical hobby, and I'd love for you to read it if you get the chance. Gardening actually makes me feel closer to God. I imagine He and I have this partnership going when it comes to my flowers. I aerate and fertilize the soil, plant and water everything, and He makes it bloom and grow! Although I DO wish He'd help out with the weeding every once in a while, I have to admit, I think we make a pretty good team!
But as I tilled and fertilized and planted over the last several days, some other thoughts occurred to me, and I'd love to share them with you today:
You'll also run into a lot of pests, but you'll eventually learn the most effective methods to control them, and they won't bother you any more. Sometimes the work will appear overwhelming, but you'll figure out that if you take it one section at a time, deal only with what's right in front of you, then move on to the next, you will get through it all.
Thanks for reading!!
