The garden dates to 2001 but I began a garden blog on January 7, 2011, ten years ago. I am rather glad it began not on the day prior, as January 6, 2021 shall live in infamy for the insurrection and mob attacks on the Capitol of the United States of America. On a date which brought such dishonor to this country, in the ensuing years I would feel it pretty insignificant to write about seeds, plants, achievements or goals for my minor little garden. I have read explanations but have never understood what would make anyone support the unqualified, supremely offensive lesser being who was voted to lead America four years ago. That he received more than his own pitiful vote in the 2020 election is a mystery and a sad reflection on the state of this country. America will be dealing with the aftermath of his lies for many years to come.
So I am grateful my blogging anniversary does not fall on January 6. I will concentrate on gardening once more, but I will remember that date.
There is no peace in the garden today, but there will be again. At some point I wrote these words for my About page: Each day in my garden is both a history of my life and a fresh beginning.
Spring will return to the garden. Thanks for visiting pbmGarden, for sharing your support, knowledge and friendship.
