Thoughts from Home

There's a gardening reason that I'm glad to be home.  Is it ...
because my potted plants look so good?  No.
...because my pond plants & fish are thriving?  No.
... because some perennials that I forgot I planted last year are beautiful?  No.
...because my peonies are in full bloom?  No.

... because I like some of the colors together?  No.
... because my irises are large and fluttery?  No.

Is it because I came home to self-seeded amaranthus wreaking havoc in my vegetable garden?  Well, partly.
It's because when the vegetable patch is that weedy, I can really see my progress once I have gone through and ruthlessly pulled the weeds.
