Quote of the Week
"Half the interest of a garden is the constant exercise of imagination."
~Mrs. C.W. Earle,
Pot-Pourri from a Surrey Garden, 1897
When I found this quote over at www.quotegarden.com , it really spoke to how I feel about gardening. I get a lot of satisfaction from taking care of and harvesting from my garden, but there's also a wonderful feeling around the creative process and imagination plays a big part in the creative process.
Every winter I meticulously go through all of my seed catalogs, gardening books/magazines and Youtube garden channels that I'm subscribed to, to get my gardening desires flowing. Who knows maybe I'll find a great tip or maybe I'll find a wonderful craft idea to borrow, but one thing I know for sure is--my creativity for the garden seems to come to life and I'm filled with ideas of what to plant and where to plant for the year.
Is your imagination taking off yet or is it still dormant until Spring? Are you planning to grow anything different this year? I'm not much of a planter of flowers, I love growing herbs and vegetables, but my hope is to bring more flowers into my yard and garden this year.
