What does your garden mean to you?

I am amazed every spring that something that I’VE planted with my own hands will grow and bloom. Anyone who just sees a flower as a flower and not something magical is missing something. That’s why I love gardening so much, it’s magic.

I love heading outside with my Felco secateurs; there just aren’t enough hours in the day. When I see my plants, my darlings in the garden, bees and butterflies, birds and even a weed (or maybe not), my heart pounds.

I do it because I’m in love with it.
