“In June as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day. No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them.” — Aldo Leopold
Nor can woman.
The garden is bursting forth with a new bud or blossom or emergence from the ground each day now. I think of my garden as primarily a late summer affair — when the veronicastrum, Joe Pye Weed, milkweed, echinacea, hosta, anise hyssop are fully grown and flowering and when the butterflies, dragonflies, and wasps flit from one to the other — but the activity now reminds me that though it may be in its glory in August, every day is a day to celebrate something new and renewed in the garden.
