Woodland shade gardening with a purpose – pleasure, creativity, rainwater collection!
Weeding my gardens is a source of great joy for me. Yes, you heard me correctly. My delight ranges from seeing tiny blossoms underneath the foliage of the Solomon’s Seal and hosta shoots emerging in early spring, to studying the intricacy of an aquilegia blossom, to finding new shoots of a plant that is beginning to colonize, maybe presenting itself as part of a layered group of several plants. There is always something new to discover when I am focused on my work in the 12 to 18 inches directly above the soil. Weeding in the spring, before all the newly-emerging foliage flushes to full size, is the best time to find weeds, and to get to know how well my plants made it through the winter. So, excuse me while I step outside to enjoy some more weeding!
To think this blog started as a gift to me from my sister. Its beginning content and photos are from a collection of emails I have been sharing with family and friends that she collected from her emails. Its amazing to read my thoughts again all in one place!
I hope you enjoy My Woodland Garden! Thanks for visiting.
