I wanted this post to be a garden update. Sadly, our garden is looking quite shabby. Our snow peas have completely died. Horn worms have descended upon our tomatoes. And, the few tomatoes we have refuse to ripen. The sunflowers have brown spots, and I’ve spotted some ants on them. The zucchini plant looks terrible and has stopped producing. I am a poor, poor gardener!
Despite my lack of success, we have a beautiful butterfly friend who still likes to come around. It is a sweet surprise to my day when I spot it. I always see butterflies as a symbol of new life and new hope. And so, I haven’t given up on my garden. I will keep trying… perhaps there is yet life in it!
