Perennial Optimism

"To create a garden is to search for a better world. In our effort to improve on nature, we are guided by a vision of paradise. Whether the result is a horticultural masterpiece or only a modest vegetable patch, it is based on the expectation of a glorious future. 
This hope for the future is at 
the heart of all gardening. "

- Marina Schinz

The last line sums it all up for me!  

There is really nothing quite like witnessing 
the season of Spring-
Plants start crawling out of the ground, 
sprouts of life start to emerge,
Lots of green and color emerge...
I find it quite magical and it renews my faith in life!
Everyone feels it, even if they don't care
about gardening.  There is a smell in the air,
a real sense of change in the atmosphere, it's
I'm ready to work and play in my garden....
Perhaps since we've had such a mild winter 
we will be having an early spring???  
I did use the word "optimism" didn't I??

Now if it would all just hurry up!!
(Oh yes, patience is not my best virtue!!)

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!


  1. I noticd tiny buds popping up in my yard, but it did get colder after I saw them. Hope they can continue to grow and bloom. xo

    1. The plants always seem to know what to do. They are smart!

  2. Hope springs eternal. We have promising signs here too.

  3. Liz,
    I am so hoping that everything I planted in my tiny little cottage garden will come back and grow this year....



Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!


Welcome to Home and Gardening With Liz. I have combined my previous blogs “Infuse With Liz” and “Sit With Me In My Garden” into this new blog. I love interior decorating and gardening. I enjoy redefining interior spaces by moving things around and reusing decorative items already found in the home. I also enjoy creating tablescapes and an occasional crafting project. I'm so pleased you've stopped by. I invite you to follow me and I do hope you will keep coming back! Liz
