The wonders and frustrations of gardening

Gardening is also a good excuse to get kitschy things from the local nursery.

For me, gardening brings me peace. It is a way of meditation. Oh, I also love getting my fingernails dirty and planting seeds that someone had discarded as too old or infertile.

I expected these tomatoes to be safe from frost when I planted them. The month of May is full of surprises.

Then I get to watch them grow, water them lovingly, knowing that soon I will make beds for them to thrive in the sun. To drink the rain, and to weather the storms, come hail, wind or cold. I have protected my plants from more freezes then I can ever remember. It’s May 2, 2013 and tonight it will freeze in about half of Texas and maybe here. I watered deeply, but the wind is to strong at this point for me to cover them.

So I will hope, and wait to see what awaits me in the morning.
