Work conundrums have gotten in the way lately of enjoying the magical morning light, the bounty of the vegetable garden, and experiencing the joy of gardening.
But, preparing for a class about mixed borders, I made note of a point in Ann Lovejoy's excellent book about garden design (Ann Lovejoy's Organic Garden Design School). She wrote about how gardens were a process, not something to be finished, in much more elegant prose than what I'm remembering. This book is one of my favorites, actually; it's wise about sustainable gardening, but equally wise about creating a garden that suits you. And isn't that the point?
