Rampant Growth in the Garden

While I was running away and setting up the show the garden continued to grow and grow and yesterday when I found a couple of hours I began to try and bring back some small semblance of order, deadheading, cutting back and still pruning deadwood from the winter. Every year I find it staggering the rate of growth, and this year it's beginning to feel like a jungle. The great lesson of the garden is that as soon as I finish, whether it's weeding or deadheading or another job I need to start again. And so the great circle continues.
