Lessons I learned in my garden.

One is patience. Not exactly my strong suit in the best of times, but always needed. And then I look at my “flower tower,” which I put together back in April with starts of cobalt blue lobelia, deep rose impatiens, and hot pink geranium. I remember what it looked like back in the beginning, and then I look at its spectacular glory right now. And what did that take? Water, a bit of fertilizer, and patience. (And yes I do see the irony in the name of my pretty pink flowers.)
