Your garden was waiting for you to retire from your job and be with it again. The old saying is "The best nourishment for a garden is the footsteps of the gardener." It's always such a wonderful surprise to find things you thought were lost.
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

I agree Captures it perfectly, LM. Terri, I'm so glad things seem to be thriving. Maybe one day you'll have some white violets to enjoy. Whistling You're welcome to more May Apples and Lily of the Valley. They're duking it out by the well.

Great to see you, LM. You've likely seen me post comments on your blog, but I don't have my own. It would be a drag posting continuously that I continue to accomplish nothing. Not sure if Terri and I visited your plant sale in 2015 or 2016, but in 2016 my folks went into hospice care 6 months apart, and passed away soon after. That kept me pretty busy and now I'm dealing with getting their house ready to go on the market. Hope to get to visit with you in person again at some point. What a lovely and diverse garden you have.
