Sweet AND Sour

I wrote a lot about the garden sweetest moments but we all know that with them also come the sourly ones. No one boasts much about them, but the important thing would be to learn from our mistakes and try again hoping for a sweet outcome next time. Or should I say sweeter? (given the past sourness). This wave of arctic air brought to my mind my white Saxifraga ex. Porteous acquired last year from Wrightman Alpines. I lost it and in the worst way – that is after a brief but glorious display.

It brought us joy and it will be remembered!

    I can’t tell you how many, many plants I have killed due to my not paying attention. But your Sax. was beautiful while it lasted and you got some great photos! that’s something isn’t it?
