This is the time of year I hit the wall as far as the gardening goes. When you live in a mild climate and have the luxury of gardening year round it can lead to burn out if you don't plan time to let it go and just enjoy the fruits of your labor. I am lucky to have help that makes sure it doesn't all fall apart while I spend time lallygagging around with friends and family that are visiting or while I take a vacation. I used to worry that I would never get that feeling back that surges through my veins while walking through the garden. That feeling of what can I put here... what if I moved that plant over there... where are my pruners? But with age comes wisdom and I know that as sure as the leaves turn yellow in the fall, when the cool weather returns I will be as passionate about gardening as I was last spring. Until them, I'm going swimming!
