My Chicago Garden

Gardening , yard work, whatever you like to call it, for me it is not a chore. Instead getting down on my hands and knees, pulling weeds and tending to seedlings is a refuge from everyday life. There is nothing like getting mud, or dirt, under your finger nails to ground you!

Now as we all know 2020 has been an odd year and my garden reflects this. It is still in it’s infancy – it takes ages to achieve that established look. My garden center had little to offer in terms of plants but that’s OK, you work with what you have. I planted seeds collected from previous years and crossed my fingers that something would come of them. A fellow gardening friend also kindly gave me some plants. All was not lost!
