Lessons from the Garden

Lessons from the Garden 0

I learn a lot from my garden. For instance, you’ve probably been told, “Bloom where you’re planted!” Heck … my garden has taught me to persist and grow even when conditions are less than optimal – in fact, impossible. Such as this pink and green coleus, that sprouted from some long-lost seed buried in the dirt and grew out of the drainage hole in the bottom of my hibiscus pot!

I just mean that my garden isn’t only composed of organic – that is, living – things. It also has inorganic components to it. Namely, my garden décor.
