Welcome to my site! I’m a middle-aged lifelong gardener, and have gone through every gardening phase from English cottage and herbs to drought-tolerant and native, and have swung back again for a path down the middle. I thought about calling this “The Middle Way,” after the Buddha’s description of the “path of moderation that leads to liberation,” but that seemed too pretentious for words, as I am anything but Zen. And in case you’re wondering, yes, “Anything but Zen” was a contender for title of this blog.
Though I love gardening, and feel most at peace in the garden, I have to fit it into a million other things I have to do and love to do–hence my middle path involves not only the careful stewardship of water and soil, but also time, energy and focus. I hope you’ll contribute to the ongoing conversation about how you balance your approach and make room for all the things that make your life worthwhile.
Hi, I’m Harriet’s husband; she forwarded your “fallen” blog post. It was a beautiful and beautifully-balanced blend of text and gorgeous photographs. When we had a crepe myrtle, it had long gouges and scratches on it from the squirrels who’d climb and slip on their way from the ground to the roof.
So nice to “see” you again! Those squirrels are the dickens, aren’t they? I imagine the smooth trunk of the crape myrtle didn’t give the squirrels much purchase for their tiny claws. Thanks so much for the kind words, and I hope you’ll continue to stop by and contribute comments whenever you can.
