I do love digging and plunking stuff in the little holes and then seeing what beautiful things happen.
I planted Orientals because the smell is intoxicating, but this Asiatic won the First Bloom prize this season.
I live in an old brownstone with neglected gardens that, until this year, I neglected, too. The quiet joy one gets in hanging with plants and making them do things, sometimes against their will, is very satisfying. I can't believe I put it off so long. Happy Summer, y'all.
