IMG_0303Today is full of sunshine and promise of things to come.  It looks like spring could spring into action any day now!  It is time to think about my garden.  How well it grows depends very much on how I tend it.

Will I have the patience and the consistency of maintaining it regularly – the watering, fertilizing and weeding throughout the season?  Will I succumb to the setback of cooler than usual temperatures, bugs, and weeds?  It’s a challenge all right.

Last year’s garden started out on a bright and green foot as you can tell by the picture.  In the end, it was not so great.  We got little for our harvest in the fall.  But still – we had some fresh vegetables for the table.

It does no good to be discouraged.  One has to have heart in life.  I will tend to my thoughts as I will for the garden.  I will be conscious of those nettles in the brain as well as those in the vegetable patch.  They can take over if you don’t pay attention.  Learn from the past mistakes and move on.  Harvest and be thankful for whatever you can reap.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
