the art of letting go

For Carpe Diem Summer Retreat 2018 Finding the Way

The onion patch in the photo is larger than the one referred to in the poem…the poem’s patch is a smaller section where I planted extra seedlings…my generosity will face a greater challenge if I have nibblers in the main garden.

  1. oh … selectively harvested … and the lesson – to let go … not let it get to you ….
    sometimes it’s best to try to plant a section in offering for the “critters” as you’ve noted …. doesn’t always work out so well though … hope they manage to stay contained enough to enjoy their own patch …

    1. I didn’t intentionally make it a rabbit/mouse etc patch but it will be very nice if they just dine there. I’ve seen a few holes and a grey mouse in the main garden but no nibbles as yet… crossing my fingers 🙂

      1. ah the joys and banes of being a gardener! (I can relate, living in the country and watching as the natural residents have their way and say with things) … so I wish you patience and good luck and fortune … and one and all be content this season … 🙂

      2. Yes we have that contrast so even though it has been very hot with little or no rain lately I try not to moan too vigorously and enjoy all that is right now….and look for cold water moments 😉

      3. sorry, I’m so laughing like a mad Canuck right now … because we would be anything but if we didn’t live, breathe and die by the daily weather? I completely agree – this high heat and humidity is hell …. I keep telling myself, think on snow – imagine the glaciers floating past in the Maritimes … and yet, it’s already mid-July? (go figure) Time seems to move too quickly!
