A Bouquet of Gardens
Keep Calm and Garden On! While there seems to be challenges already mounting on the 2014 gardening season that hasn¹t
even started, we have not lost heart. One of my favorite anonymous quotes is "He who plants a seed, Beneath the sod; And waits
to see ­ Believes in God." Unwavering optimism is common ground among gardeners and we intend to press ahead despite
growing conditions that may be less than ideal. Mother Nature manages to even things out eventually and while we were shorted
with rain from July until the ground froze, we imagine there will be spring rains that will quench the thirst of trees, shrubs and
perennials that have endured a dry and bitterly cold winter season. This is, after all, Iowa, and this state has very unpredictable
weather patterns. We've learned to take what we get, be thankful for all of those blessings that only God can provide, and assist
Mother Nature wherever we can. One thing is for sure ­ a garden is worth the work, and the rewards far outweigh the difficulties it
takes to get to the end result: a bit of Heaven on earth!

Our enthusiasm for the spring season might be contagious! If you are feeling an itch to play in
the dirt or have developed a spring fever that will not subside, you have all the symptoms. A trip
to the Prairie Pedlar is a perfect cure!
