The lesson I have thoroughly learnt, and wish to pass on to others, is to know the enduring happiness that the love of a garden gives. – Gertrude Jekyll
How Do I Love Thee
Somervell County Master Gardener
If you believe the messages put out on social media or even just walk through a store and smell the chocolate, you have already realized February is the month for love. And, although we love our friends and family, our pets, our homes, and even our morning coffee, the theme of this month’s newsletter will be the love many of us feel for our gardens. Whether they are vegetable, flower, or even rock, our gardens are in need of a little tender loving care this month. The sunny days we experience on and off in February are perfect for zipping up our jackets and stepping outside to assess how best to pour a little loving on our favorite spaces.
