Re: Gardening and depression

Robert, each spring, when I notice the first iris starting to grow, the enchantment starts all over again. When the very first iris blooms, I fall in love with irises all over again. When the iris catalogues arrive, I want even more irises, so I can enjoy them over an even longer period. Certainly we have some disappointments throughout the season, but the irises and other flowers that grow and bloom for us are surely honouring us for all our hard work. There is no need to travel far to see such beauty; it's right there in our very own backyards.

I was wondering if the moth balls had any detrimental effect on your plants. I bought some this spring but chickened out for fear the moth balls might do as much harm to the plants as the vole, moles, gophers, chipmunks and deer I fight. So far the Groundhogs have stayed in the woods. Sometimes i don't know whether gardening is making me depressed or keeping me from it. But ever spring I get excited anew, and disappointed again and again.
