I am at that point of the New Year where I search out flowers that…
It has been a long time, over two years, since I worked in my garden.
We sold our house, and, of course the garden as well in September of 2020.
What is it I miss?
The many trips outside to see what came up, what died, and what was new in the garden.
Though we had only three quarters of an acre, it was a lot to maintain.
I know that intellectually, but the experience of loss is emotional.

What I remember of the garden is its diversity of ongoing projects. Perhaps a new perennial bed, or a new section of dahlias, or a plant gift from a neighbor – any of these could draw my attention and entice me to check it out.
Today I garden on the balcony, outside our condominium.
Though we are limited to shade loving plants, it is fun and I am growing into it, ever in search of new plant varieties for the containers out there.
I wish you a Happy New Year!
