This past Sunday found me praying, head down in the weeds. Literally. The area near the garden gate has become a bit overgrown and keeping up with the garden space in the summer is all about triage! That said, the entrance does set the stage, and I dislike presenting our worst parts first. Finding our native wildflowers amidst the native summer weeds was a bit thrilling. They’ve really done quite well this past year and the exterior beds have been quite beautiful, more than ever before. The work was a bit of the slog and there was no one about, but the day was brightened when a passing woman walking three dogs tossed a breezy “the garden looks beautiful” over her shoulder and I realized again how many people see and enjoy the community garden. Sometimes when you get too close all you see are the flaws and it takes a stranger to remind you how wonderful something is.
