I would be the first to admit that I’m behind on my garden blog reading. So it was only today, when I was supposed to be doing something much more necessary on the computer, that I discovered Does Your Garden Overwhelm You? Try this! It figures a maturing gardener would have such words of wisdom. I myself have long held (in regards to gardening) “if it’s not fun, don’t do it!” but I was never smart enough (or was it well-to-do enough) to hire someone to do the “hateful” chores so I had more time to garden. I just didn’t do the chores and my house looks it. Oh, well. My favorite tip from this post: “I never hired a gardener because they tend to be very free with chemicals and hedge clippers. NOT a good combination.”
In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
