The Need for Garden Sentimentality

Grandma’s roses, great grandma’s irises, historical perennials, heirloom bulbs, vintage gardening, and plants of historical importance – these are all terms that call out to the sentimental gardener.

It was so nice to once again read one of your articles. It has been too long! Whistling

It sounds like you are out of the apartment and have a bit of ground now to garden on, is that so??? Will look forward to seeing photos of your garden.

I have been blessed with seeds of daylilies from a friend in Canada that I meant thru DG and we have continued visiting on here for many years as well and with daily e-mails. The daylilies have been growing well the last few years and always remind me of our friendship. Smiling

Hi there Linda!

So wonderful to hear from you. I do try to write more but I will always (God willing) write a Memorial Day article. I think of you every time I step outside actually. Smiling I have a sea of wall flowers. Here is just one photo of many. In the morning, the gentle breeze delivers the delicious fragrance to me as I eat breakfast. Such a blessing.

Thank you so much and I wish you nothing but the best always. Oh, and how wonderful to get Day lily seeds! Smiling I need to plant more than what I have.
