A Favorite Quote

"If you look the right way you can see that the whole world is a garden." from The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Finally! It is nice out, the sun is shinning and there is no immediate threat of rain. We have had rain in this area of PA for weeks now. My plants are waterlogged and some just don't look too good because of it. I actually had to repot some of them into a more sandy soil.

Well, I guess I have to admit that those I repotted actually needed sandy soil anyway. But if it hadn't rained so very much, I could have postponed that job. As I look at my Aloe plant I am firmly reminded how great a difference it makes to have the correct soil for your plants. I actually had to bring that plant in on the porch to keep it from getting too much rain. It is looking quite a bit better now.

My purpose in this blog is to share with others the love of gardening and taking it one step further...a love of visiting gardens. God made the first garden and we can learn more about Him through our study of gardens and plants.  I have visited gardens from the Pottstown/Boyertown area, near home, to The Bahamas and St. Thomas. As the weeks go on I will share some photos with you of some of the gardens I have enjoyed.  I'll also share occasional devotional thoughts about knowing God better.

I'd also like to hear from you readers where some of your favorite gardens are. I'd especially like to hear about gardens you have visited in the Philadelphia and Tri-State area. (Delaware/NJ/MD)
