"Habit is habit and not to be flung out of the window by any man but coaxed downstairs a step at a time." (from Mark Twain's Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar)
As you can see, I've been coaxing my gardening habit since we moved back to Southern Illinois. Old habits die hard and so do (I hope!) old gardeners (and bloggers?). This one anyway is still alive and kicking.
I wonder if the Echinacea I've planted in my garden is adding years to my life?
Or could it be the Salvia?
Perhaps it's the Bee Balm?
If there were a way to bottle and market this Tonico Jardin I've coaxed here, I would be a wealthy woman...
...or perhaps I am one already.
