Yet another gardening weblog

After being told my webpage was fourth on the search for “garden blog” (it’s actually fifth), I had to check it out for myself and discovered Judi, Judi, Quite Contrary. Judi has several other blogs going as well, which is how I learned she’s expecting twins.
Strangely enough, I am not even on the first page of hits for “garden blogs.”
Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
