…a year makes….
On this Father’s Day,
I look back and see where TheGreatWall has been.
First of all,
I lost my Dad,
my gardening mentor,
the greatest gardener I shall ever know.
But,as he would say,
”The garden goes on whether you’re here or not.It is what it wants to be.You cannot control it.”
With that in mind,I shall look back over the past year…
A year ago,TheGreatWall was getting ready for its fifteen minutes of fame…
…and lamenting on the amount of shade that was here…
…not to mention a totally ruined swimming pool…
but TheGreatWall has persevered…
A new tree has been planted to replace TheTree
(which was a Florida Oak).
The new one is a Sweet Gum.
Planted further away,and closer to the water.
The old,cracked pool has been replaced with a new and better version…
To quote my Dad,
”The garden will tell you where it wants to go.You need to learn patience.”
I’m still working on the patience thing,Dad.
