Wise BHG Quotes
I always enjoy thumbing through Better Homes and Gardens magazine, especially because it is so wonderfully inexpensive, but when I try to find anything on their website, I see clutter and complications. I can rarely find anything I am searching for. As a result, I am unable to link to these elusive items. Nonetheless, here are two quotes from BHG senior associate editor, Jane McKeon, which struck me as worth passing along. One is appropriate to this very minute:
"After autumn passes and winter sets in, take a bird's eye view of the garden while its bones are bare. Sketch out those planting plans that came in the heat of a summer moment, before they drift into winter hibernation."
And the other is less technical and more about sharpening the saw in high summer, but its deeper meaning applies year-round:
"Allow time each day to simply enjoy your garden. Don't dwell on the negatives--the weeds, the unfinished tasks, the plants nibbled by rabbits. Instead, focus your eyes on the beauty of details--a newly opened flower, dewdrops gleaming in the sun, a butterfly winging from bloom to bloom."
