I haven’t shared much about the flower gardens this year. Mostly because I’ve done nothing in the flower gardens.
In life we have to make choices. And my choice this year has been to focus on the vegetable garden. That means I haven’t done anything in the flower gardens… at all.
Most of the gardens have filled in enough that they still look somewhat presentable, but here and there are weeds that are taller than me.
I try not to pay too much attention and remind myself that there are only so many hours in a day and I’ve made my choice about where to spend my energy.
However, this week I received another reminder: sometimes leaving things alone isn’t such a bad plan.
Look at this mini sunflower. There are two of these volunteers courtesy of the birdfeeder.
Had I been weeding this year, I would have pulled these out long ago. I never would have seen their sunny blooms.
Sometimes neglect isn’t such a bad thing.
