I am new to gardening. I've always loved the idea of it, and "The Secret Garden" is still one of my favorite movies - I think it made a lasting imprint on my heart.
However, I haven't always had the confidence to start gardening. It always seemed a bit intimidating to me. I never had great luck with houseplants, either.
Earlier in 2014, I decided to just give it one more go. I bought the succulent plant on the right side of the above photo, and miracle of miracles - it lived! It has grown so much. This encouraged me to buy a few more plants, including the ones pictured and a few air plants, too. I also planted some daffodil bulbs in Fall, and I am incredibly excited to see them emerge this Spring. They will be yellow, orange, and white. Some of them will be fragrant, too!
I love taking care of my little plants. I like to wake up in the morning and see if they've changed overnight. I like to dream about what I could plant. I believe gardening opens up a whole world of inspiration and possibilities.
If gardening is something you've been meaning to try, I definitely recommend giving it one more go.
What are you looking forward to seeing in your garden this Spring?
“Of course there must be lots of Magic in the world," he said wisely one day, "but people don't know what it is like or how to make it. Perhaps the beginning is just to say nice things are going to happen until you make them happen. I am going to try and experiment.”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
