You’ve probably heard me say this before:
“When planting, remember the first year plants weep, the second year they creep, and the third year they leap!”
here is a slightly different version:
“Perennials sleep the first year, they creep the second year, and they leap the third year.”
Which leads to this thought:
A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.
