One downside to a week-long vacation is that I miss the gardens. I worry about the plants getting enough water and I fret over missing some spectacular, short-lived blooms.
When we returned Sunday, we were just in time to see the welcoming sights of the favorite yellow lilies, the newly-planted daisies, and the sweet, pink yarrow. The next day, I spent time watering and getting reacquainted with the gardens and discovered the tomatoes and green beans that emerged during our time away. As much as I love our time at the lake, it’s good to be home. And that is a good thing.
