Judith of knitagarden regards her camera as an essential garden tool. She lists ten ways her camera helps her be a better gardener. Some are pretty obvious, but I for one had never thought to document drainage problems with a camera. Speaking of cameras, one of my goals for this year is to take more pictures and incorporate more images into my blog entries.
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.
