Hello my fellow gardeners. I am writing this blog for fun and to begin a discussion about how gardening reflects the many aspects of our lives. If you will pay attention I propose that you will find either a link to your childhood, a glimpse of what you believe in, or maybe even a vision of your hopes of the future.
What do you think about when you are weeding? I usually think about sin and the devil when i weed the place that last week took so much of my time and effort. Seriously,I curse those relentless blades of grass that don't even need to be watered to thrive. I think about the attention I gave to selecting just the right seed packets or small plants, considering the needs for sunlight and water. Then the care I took in planting them etc. It seems to be the same with the other areas of my life where I care so much. I'm always watching, guarding against evil, and wondering if there will ever be an end to the ugly that messes with beauty.
