Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day November 2010: Better Late Than Never
I missed bloom day this November and last month I didn’t post at all. What a shame.
When we got a spot of sun yesterday, I headed out to the garden to do some veggie garden prep. The temperature was so warm and the day so lovely, that I quickly lost track of time puttering around. When I ventured out to my front flower garden I was delighted to find some hardworking plants bearing flowers in the cold, rainy November weather. Good for them. Yet no one has been out to appreciate their hard work. A shame.
I like listing off what’s blooming in the garden each month so I have a record (a blog is a journal after all) and it does get me out there appreciating the flowers that I have been neglecting. I have recently been treating it as a chore. Then to look back on my previous posts-stunning colour and shapes that change month to month so dramatically-I’m glad that I at least I have a year to review. Less of a shame.
I’m back on track now, loving both the blooms and bloom day. Setting aside the canning jars and root vegetables and homemade soap and all the projects for a moment to appreciate the beauty that lives on. Better late than never, right?
