For the 17th year in a row our city has held Open Garden Week. Sixty-one gardeners have opened their yards to anyone interested in viewing their labour of love.
This is the first years I've visited a garden. It belongs to one of the ladies from the gym and I've been hearing about it all spring. This year she polled her friends and garden club members and decided that yes, her garden was worthy.
Her beds are spread around her backyard and are anchored with a large variety of hostas. Not a spot of soil shows as she has packed each with colour.
I came home and looked at my garden and decided I'm not ready for viewing. It's not that I don't like my flower beds, it's because I have no idea what most of the plants are called. I'm a hodgepodge gardener. I haven't saved labels, I haven't kept notes, I have no master plan.
