Botanical gardens are a delight. I have visited Trinidad's, Tobago's, Grenada's, and Barbados's. I have also been to The Kew Gardens in London. Too few places for my avid interest. I would say. Gardens are a source of pleasure; a restful roaming for the eyes and all the other senses.
Were I a travelling person still, at every point of my jaunts I would ask to visit lovely large world renown gardens.
Yet, my garden at home remains humble. A few ixoras, bougainvilleas, caricatures, dinner plates, spider lilies, Caladium (which the rainy season excites), plumerias, pinwheel jasmines, crown of thorns, bachelor buttons, chinese bamboo, and a lot of green and varieagated green plants.
I should be more brisk at tending my garden since i find flowers so delightful. But i am a lazy retiree. I remember in high school being a part of a rose garden planting project. That one is etched in my memory. What more does my garden need? Hmm in the words of Katherine Riegel I’d like, too, to plant the sweet alyssum that smells like honey and peace.
