Gaillardia, still hanging on
We seem to be having the weather in November that we should have had in October. It should be 65* today and it'll remain warm through the weekend. An all-around pleasant thought, and coupled with the election results of yesterday, I am pleased, and hopeful, for the first time in a very long while.
How many of you garden for the pure therapy of it? I swear to you, I have often "retreated" to the yard with tools in hand because it consistently gives me a feeling of accomplishment. As in, "Crap, the economy is a mess and the deficit has quadrupled in the last 4 years and we are enmired in our own Vietnamese war in Iraq and we have draft-dodging idiots running our country, but wow, doesn't that row of chard look terrific?"
