I’m a lot of things

But I’m really not a gardener.* I’m a big fan of gardens, however, and especially a fan of the people who tend to them.

I’m in awe of those who seem innately to know what to do with plants and earth. I have no issues with getting dirty or digging in the dirt, but I need a lot of direction. In fact, put me to work in your garden if it means you’ll grant me permission to wander at will (just hold my hand a bit, and be patient with my questions).

this might be yarrow…

I guess if I stayed in one place I could probably learn to tend a garden, but until then I will appreciate other people’s gardens.

I could sit in this particular garden all evening and listen to all the humming of activity, watch the sun move over this plot as it tucks in for the night.

*I might have identified some plants incorrectly here. Again, I’m no gardener. But I’m trying to learn the names of the things I appreciate.
