There was a time when I had hours to devote to my gardens. I fought the pesky bugs, creepy pests, and cheeky squirrels (little buggers brave enough to steal my tulip bulbs while I was planting!).
I pruned, fertilized, and watered my plants regularly, and they rewarded me with spectacular color and growth.
Neighbors would often stop by to ask what a certain plant was in order to go to the local nursery and pick one up for their own yard.
Since my son was born 2 years ago, my gardens have not received much attention at all. And this is how they’ve repaid me.
I should have known that Mother Nature would take care of things while I was away.
