"Despite Being Neglected..."

...Overgrown...and prone to infestation...








...Nature still found a way for my Illinois garden
to bloom.
We must each must do the same for ours spirits and hearts.
Bloom today...
bloom as brightly and beautifully as you can...
...despite it all!

Here in Oregon, slugs are the major plantain challenge, but surely it's something else where you are.
