Notes From Joy

 

 

There is a bit of garden wisdom I recently came across in the latest edition of Michigan

Gardener. It is a quote from Dr. Allen Armitage, a well known writer,

speaker, and researcher who is recognized by professional

gardeners and lay people alike as an expert in herbaceous plants.

This is Dr. Armitage's quote:

 

“The one absolute of gardeners is faith. Regardless of how bad past gardens have been,

every gardener believes that next years will be better”

 

With this year’s growing season coming to an end, I find truth in his words - as gardeners

we are always looking forward to another growing season and if everything didn’t go as

we planned this year - then, oh well - we’ll try again next year!

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the fall season - and may all our gardening dreams

come true NEXT YEAR!!
