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

  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
