Gardeners are Dreamers

Dahlias planted June 3, 2022, started indoors March 15, 2022

Anticipation is one of the delights of gardening. Each seed placed in the soil, each small plant tucked in the ground, is a hopeful action.

I started my indoor garden far too early and the result was big plants ready to be outdoors and a cold spring that did not accommodate this. So I faithfully carried them outdoors and in when the nights to the end of May were too cold, 2° C in our community. I also need to rely on a friend to water almost EVERYDAY!, while we were away. I am gifted with wonderful friends.

Waiting for Good weather!
