It appears that gardening is getting to be an obsession with me. Well, maybe the word "obsession" is a bit strong. I just know that gardening is something I've been thinking about quite a lot lately & gardening itself appears to be bringing me some contentment. I don't know why that is since gardening is a LOT of work ... lol! Maybe there's some sort of hidden key here though ... hard work equals contentment?
Phyllis McGinley, a poet & writer of children's books, said "The trouble with gardening is that is does not remain an avocation. It becomes an obsession." Maybe I didn't choose too strong a word : )
