Gardening Requirements

"A garden requres patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambtions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive becase someone expended effort on them." Liberty Hyde Bailey said this and I couldn't agree more.

I notice also that the more time I have to look at my houseplants the more they flourish - I guess it's true that gardening, like most other things worth nurturing, take time. So, as you make your New Year's resolutioons be sure you slip in some time to be amazed, wonder, and nurture life around you.

Happy New Year may it be better than anything you ever experienced before--grow with it!
