I am experiencing that this year!
Here it is end of June, and I still have plants to put out, and seeds that should have been sowed. Everything gets done at a slower pace now, so I do run out of time.

My daughter (a pharmacist) put it into perspective for me:

She said: if at 77, my only complaint was that:-- I don't have the energy to get everything done in my garden, then I am very lucky. She said that I should see some of her 77 year old clients who are in extremely poor health! I am blessed!

I agree... we should consider ourselves blessed if we have our health and an interest in gardening.

I absolutely love that inspiration Lovey dubby Lovey dubby Lovey dubby but have to say I have too much to get done, I CAN'T run out of thyme. Whistling
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

I'm a 70 year semi retired community pharmacist and love landscape gardening.
But I must admit, that the heat in the Upstate of South Carolina mandates a early start because the evening storms contribute to running out of time😫.
But I'm grateful for the rain ... All living things need water to survive and I appreciate the helping hand🚰

I agree


Enjoy everyday, tomorrow is not guaranteed.

As long as I wake up in the morning I have thyme to do something on this day! Hurray!
Today's mighty oak is yesterday's little acorn that stood it's ground.
