I just picked my first hydrangeas today and put them in a little vase on the table. I can’t even explain the pleasure it gave me. But it something about the very basic connection to the earth you get when gardening, and the joy is seeing something grow….and the frustration when someone eats your baby lettuce (sorry, it’s true, found that annoying.)
But as I puttered around today, I realized how happy gardening has made me since I was a little girl. It’s one of those things I encourage everyone to try. And by try, I don’t mean have someone else do it for you, I mean do it yourself. That is from where the satisfaction springs.
