It's a new year and time to turn my attention back to both my garden and this blog. It's shameful the way I've been neglecting both in the past couple months but work and life have conspired to steal my time and drain my energy. I've realized though that there's another, even bigger reason why I've haven't been spending time either gardening or blogging: Neither has seemed very fun lately. And that is a shame, because both have given me a lot of pleasure in the past.
So as I was thinking about new year's resolutions and goals for 2009, it occurred to me that the best resolution I could make is to find the fun again--to make a point of enjoying my time in the garden and blogging about it. 2008 was for me personally and perhaps for the world at large somewhat of a soul-sucking experience. I'm ready for a fresh start and more than ready for some fun.
Happy new year and best wishes for my fellow gardeners, bloggers, and readers in 2009!
