“Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words.” Lydia M. Child
Ever since I was a child, I’ve loved journaling. During the years, I’ve created several Garden Journals to document my gardens’ growth and changes. I’ve included magazine articles and pictures that have inspired a new creation or idea that I’ve wanted to incorporate into my gardens. As the years have progressed, I’ve been able to visually see the changes and growth that have naturally taken place. Another benefit to keeping a journal is that it allows you to see what worked or didn’t work as well as what may have died. I take photos every month to have an accurate idea of what was where and when it bloomed. This aids me in knowing when I don’t have enough things blooming so I can add or replace plants.
