It’s hard to be a gardener when you’re a perfectionist. Mother Nature has a tendency to play by her own mysterious rules, and plants, of course, rely on her largesse. The result is that despite certain predictabilities we’re never entirely sure what we’re going to get from season to season – that’s even more the case after a difficult winter, spring and summer like the ones we experienced this year. As I get ready to put my garden to bed until 2015, I’m reminded that for a gardener there’s always another season, another year to come – and to look beyond the proverbial forest and see not just the trees, but the leaves, buds and blooms as well.
