"The merry year is born
Like the bright berry from the naked thorn."
So much about life we can learn in our gardens. From the joy of the different seasons to what challenges us, a garden teaches patience, perseverance, determination and compassion. We are rewarded for efforts but not always in the way we expect. Garden flowers add beauty, and sometimes sustenance, and having a helping hand from another gardener makes the journey more enjoyable.
Here's to a new year in your garden being interesting, productive and fruitful. Happy New Year!
What are you hoping to learn this year?
