I finally got into the front gardens today and tamed the unruly Russian sage. I love that stuff but it is insane! I chopped back four plants and filled one trash can.
I purposely did not take pictures because the previous owner of our home, who reads this blog, might freak out. =) I'm assured, by a garden guru, that it will grow back even more lovely in the spring.
I had a little thing go through my head and heart as I was chopping sage. I was removing a lot of dead stuff and worried that it might not grow back so lovely in the spring. Then I thought that would be OK because I could plant something else and it would be lovely; different, but lovely.
It occurred to me I need to do the same in my life. There is old, dead stuff I need to get rid of because it is keeping me from growing. I'm rarely that deep when I'm working in the garden. So, I'm going to concentrate on being still and listening to the whispers...
Off subject, but isn't this wonderful? This guy was a little 8" pot just a few months ago. Man of the house and I have decided that we are going to plant some around parts of the fence (on the outside, away from corgis) and hopefully it will create a natural screen.
