I have heard it said that you should blog about the things that you are passionate about. What is the one thing that you could just go on and on talking about? The answer that I always come up with is gardening.
While I was growing up there were always people who were gardening around me. My parents and grandparents grew most of their own food. Both of my grandmothers like growing flowers. I could see my paternal grandfather working in his vegetable garden no matter how hot it was outside. It was hard work but those vegetables and melons sure tasted good!
This is the time of year when I shine. I have a genuine love of plants and flowers. It makes me happy to see my flower buds appear and then when they burst forth with their new flowers I could sing!
I love the brilliant colors of the leaves in the fall and the beautiful decorations during the Christmas season but nothing warms my heart like the beauty of plants and flowers.
I would like to take some of the knowledge that I have gained by trial and error and use it to enrich your life and your garden.
Sometimes people tell me that they can’t grow anything; that they “kill” everything. I tell them that it helps if you have a love of plants. When I first really started gardening I read lots of books on the subject.
I don’t always get to garden as much as I want to because of life’s circumstances but gardening is never very far away from my mind.
Try your hand at gardening today.
I welcome your questions and comments. I don’t have a degree on the subject but I have lots of experience. If I don’t have the answer I will try to find it for you.
