Pooka was outside yesterday putting recycling in our recycling bin that has sadly not made it back into the garage. She came running in to tell me one of my stargazers had bloomed. She said it looked very pretty and smelled wonderful. She was so excited I had to drop everything so she could show it to me, and then to Daddy as soon as he got home from work.
The last few days have been very hard for us here, due to non garden stuff. But seeing a bit of color and remembering what it brings can help. Maybe that is why they say that "Gardening is cheaper then therapy and you get tomatoes."
