Even with temperatures being so chilly as for the breath seen upon exhale, I have bundled up warm to continue with the reopening of my gardens. The going has been slow at times, and downright painful, because the body I walk in prefers warmth, not chilly.
As of this writing, all gardens in the front of our home are finished, as well as the gardens running alongside our garage and half circle sidewalk. This does not include fertilization or insect control, only clearing out (and I must smile at the word ONLY), pruning, shaping, weeding, removing all winter preparations on Roses that had promoted warmth and protection, and another application of mulch as topping.
It is still too chilly to fertilize, so this year, I wait on Mother to warm up. I’ve also decided this year I am using liquid fertilizers versus the granules to avoid knee and back strain. Weeding will be enough as far as kneeling goes this year. And even with that, I many times will do Yoga poses in order to get down to the ground to avoid kneeling. One must work smart in gardens in order to promote wellness to the body.
I will keep this short, so in closing, below are three more babies from my gardens. Please enjoy and as you view these images, keep in mind these really are tiny. This new lens of mine is opening up an entire new world for me and as a result, you as well when you look and see what Mother is showing me through this powerful “eye” called a lens. Here you go … three more babies! And yes, answering your question, I have captured more babies. (smile) This week at Petals shall be a GOOD one, believe me!
