The garden doesn’t wait…

I know it, but sometimes nature reminds it violently to me... whether it’s a roof tile broken during a typhoon by a branch we neglected to cut, an overflow of the gutter because it was filled with fallen leaves... I learn my lessons. I also now monitor more closely the plants and trees, can predict... Continue Reading →
