When one of my plants dies, I truly feel a loss. A part of me was in that little plant. A part of my part of my hopes and dream for that plant is gone too. When I walk up and down the aisles of plants at my local garden shop I feel like I am on a mission, and I feel inspired to try a new experiment. I pick the right one (or 5) and take it/them home. I peruse my garden and see where the perfect fit for the newest member of the plant family will be. Once that is established out comes the shovel, gloves and other garden materials to give the plant the best chance possible. You hope and water and imagine what the plant will look like when it reaches full maturity. When it works out that way it is a wonderful sight, but when it doesn’t, when no matter how hard you try the plant doesn’t thrive and eventually dies it is hard. When we garden a part of us goes in that soil, but fear not to try again. That too is a part of gardening, try and try again, find out what may have gone wrong, but mostly don’t give up!
