Is the garden ever in repose?
No, not really. Not even in the dead of winter.
Underneath, bulbs are starting to stir. Seeds are emerging. Roots are reaching for nourishment.
We may only see the outline of a garden.
But survival takes a lot of energy.
Fall is the time we think of the garden as going into repose for the winter.
But we are wrong.
Like a cocoon, there is more than meets the eye that we can't see.
Is a gardener ever in repose?
I think not. Always thinking, always planning, always tweaking.
And the gardener is always dreaming of spring.
