As I have navigated through this pandemic, I have thought more than once, "So this is who I am."

That, of course, shifts and shifts often. One thing I know for sure is thank goodness for the plants!

I have often thought of all our library patrons, many of you whom I consider friends, and wondered how you’re coping. I know little snatches of your lives as you do mine. And I truly miss the sharing and conversations.

Now I spend a great deal of time talking to my cats and the plants. They seem to enjoy it and, in the end, they have no choice. I feel like I have tried and am trying every gardening experiment I’ve ever dreamed of or read about. Some are successful. Some aren’t. My yard will never be quite the same and that’s a good thing. Although the plants are getting a little tired of being moved from place to place, the outcome is usually pretty satisfying.

I have watched countless You Tube offerings and actually read most of my gardening books. It would be wonderful to wander back to the gardening section at the Knox County Public Library (Call Number 635) and feast on some new ideas. There’s no telling what I might come up with! The library has hundreds of beautiful gardening books to borrow.

I am looking forward to that opportunity, as I know all of you are.
