A few good reasons to garden

These were just a few of the reasons for gardening that I found today. It has been a very warm and dry spring for us in the PNW. Usually by now we are eager for the 4th of July because that signals an end to the rain and the start of summer. It has been so much like summer already that I am wondering just what I will have left to flower and look forward to in the garden. Everything is about a month and a half ahead of schedule. Then again I really should admit that I am basing my wealth of meager knowledge from one year of gardening. Ok, you can stop laughing now. Maybe by mid July it will just be greens. Maybe in my desperate need for color I will buy a bunch of annuals to get through. Or maybe, just maybe, I will find that the plants know just what to do and will put out more flowers the rest of the season. Happy thoughts. Yes, I will think happy thoughts.

  1. Lovely reasons to garden for sure. I loved seeing what was happening in your gardens today. We are having more rain as I write. Of course earlier it was nice and sunny so I did two loads of laundry. The first one I brought in but the second load out on the lines are getting rain rinsed. Our 3-4 year drought is finally over. I hope you get some rain soon. I really love what you did with your rocks, a waterfall and a pond.
