Finding God in the Garden is easy. When springtime rolls around, it’s hard for me not to write about my favorite season. Visions of pink and blue hydrangeas, white gardenias, yellow daylilies, coral heuchera, and purple petunias dance in my head. Every year I save up for colorful replacements or new varieties. There are some things about this time of year, however, that can destroy its beauty–if I let it.
Whether you’re writing, teaching, mothering, or gardening–no matter what the season, activity or occupation–these three keys will help you be more successful.
Recently I bought a new plant called an ornamental mustard. Beautiful leaves, pretty colors–different from anything I owned. I wasn’t sure where to plant it, but I knew we’d find a place for it. New plants always perk up the garden, especially in Fall, when some things are fading. I found a temporary spot on the back porch, until I decided on its permanent home. But I forgot something vital about that plant.
