RE: Gardenjournal: winter of our discontent

in #gardenjournal5 months ago

I love these glimpses into your garden, so different than mine in a climate so different than mine with plants more like my houseplants, but with the same challenges, setbacks and hopes. I wonder if all avid gardeners are both artists and philosophers?

Sort:  

Thank you. Many of your houseplants are actually native to my country and to be honest, I was quite surprised at the Clivias frost resistance. The plants that were hit hardest are exotics here.
Gardening is definitely a creative endeavour and I guess we must get philosophical after all the disasters

And the best part is -- but maybe more so here with the harsh winter -- you get to try again next season.

I always feel bad if I kill plants that I wanted to grow. Less so about getting rid of invasives so there's that contradiction

I know how you feel.
