The garden knows its schedule. It does not need a nudge to blossom. This time of year, I am thankful for the gardeners who tilled this earth before me. Their blooming legacy is a continual wonder of color and joy.
I weed and I water these perennials. The rewards are great, since they enthusiastically bloom each year. Gardening is very rewarding. The weeds win each year, still, the flowers win my heart.
