Gardeners are enthusiastic about our plants and our gardens. However, we see our own garden much differently from the way our friends view it. How often do we say "you should have seen my garden last week?"
I always feel that visitors to my garden don't appreciate it the same way I do. I have learned to let people walk through and find surprises themselves. Of course it is also good to be prepared with a sunhat and water if they want to linger!
