Gardening simply does not allow one to be mentally old, because too many hopes and dreams are yet to be realized.~Allan Armitage.
Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.~Unknown
In mid July I asked for help to recognize the name of a perennial plant as I lost the name card. Recently many buds have started to open and a few dark pink flowers are blooming on it. Apparently it’s a variety of late blooming aster, may be its Marie dark pink aster.
I donot remember why I chose the specific plants for my garden. I knew nothing then but was quite eager to try something new. In last couple of months I learned many interesting things about gardening and I am so happy.
There are no gardening mistakes, only experiments.~ Janet Kilburn Phillips

So plant your own gardens and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.~
The imapct of lock down on all of us is beyond measure. The sudden change in life style was difficult for many of us. I was fortunate enough as the idea of gardening came to my rescue. I am definitely not a homebody or hermite but I am managing it 🙂
I have a couple of flowering plants. The garden is blooming in various phases first tulips, then azaleas and rhododendrons with early perennials. Now roses are back but beautiful bright flowering zinnia are show stoppers.

Earlier flowers in my garden – Summer at home
“Live at home”~
This is the first summer I am not travelling to India or any other places. The travel restrictions have forced me to stay here. In the beginning I felt sad but then I started thinking about “Something good will always come out of something bad”.
I started enjoying my everyday hike/walk and I decided to work on my front garden.
Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.~ May Sarton
Plants want to grow; they are on your side as long as you are reasonably sensible.~
I love to spend time in my little garden (there are not so many plants yet) and I am glad I trusted my instincts.
