Patience

Season upon season gardeners are given opportunities to practice patience and, like plants themselves, to seek light even from amongst shadows.

    Lovely photos of beautiful flowers. Patience has never been my strong suit, although I did manage to stay away from all election coverage yesterday. I’ve viewed bits and pieces this morning but intend to take refuge in my garden again shortly. Fingers crossed. Best wishes Susie.

    I found my mother’s old pinking shears the other day – not sure they still work, but loved seeing them again – she always had cool season Dianthus and called them pinks..I can grow them here and need to find some..I think patience and age (of the garden, not the gardener) are the best paths to a beautiful garden.

      So sorry I missed your lovely comment from a while back, Amelia. Yes, pinks–that’s what I’ve heard them called as well. Cool you have the pinking shears too!
