I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

This is a pic of the garden I planted in Boston..It looks lovely now and the marigolds have pumped since I left! They have tripled in size and its nice to get pics of them and see the progress.They brighten up the street and everyone stops to admire them...I have done this everywhere.I planted gardens in OKC when I lived there too.I dont think I can go for longer than a couple of mths anywhere without putting my hands into the soil and planting! I usually start off with things in pots and hanging baskets but they get too big and I get bored so I plant them in the ground and replant the baskets.
Today in New Zealand Ive been repottong the hanging baskets with lobellias,pansies,sweet william,and polyanthus.They look bright and happy.We have had almost a mth of daily rain,gale force winds,cold and its not been gardening weather..but today is great.Its still windy as but at least my hands are planting again in the soil that is rich with peat.Its free draining so I can grow anything.Im about to get my big strong son to dig out a huge rose and replant it and move some big buxus to new locations.
Oh I feel so happy when the sun is shining! I dont care what the temperature is as long as the suns bright! Have a great weekend my friends.

Sounds wonderful, all the gardening that you do. I'm hopeless when it comes to plants. Plants tend to die if I so much as look at them!
