I'm aware that there is a disconnect between what I hope to accomplish with the growing seasons and how much time I actually apply to making those goals flourish. You read it here first: 2018 is going to be the year that I schedule in gardening--practice gardening. I love weeding, but this year I so often pushed it to the bottom of the list. I realize that I need to rearrange my making schedule and expectations to accommodate the required tending. There is so much to learn and no better way to learn than actually doing it. What an underwhelming lesson to learn! That said, I spent some time in the garden photographing some recent quilts, which I will be writing about a little later, and I couldn't help but turn the lens on some of the darlings growing there (and Ninja too). So enjoy the photos and next year, watch out weeds! I'm coming for you!
