RE: Re: A lovely garden

Yah, it's always hard in the spring to leave and go to work. Come to that,
it isn't easy the rest of the year either. :-)
One thing about living in the desert is you can have a lot of property but
not a lot of maintenance. I have a big garden(s) because I irrigate, but if
I didn't, we could knock down the weeds once a year in spring and that would
be it. When I see articles about gardeners with good-sized lots and they
have ponds, and tree-lined walks, and so forth...I always wonder how many
people it takes for maintenance on something like that. I'm maxed out with
what I've got, which is probably less than a fourth of our available land -
can't imagine how I'd manage where things just grow, and grow, and grow. 
On those lines I was deeply disappointed to learn that a local botanic
garden, Mourning Cloak Ranch, is closed. The owners can no longer handle the
upkeep and apparently the property itself is entangled in some way that they
cannot sell it yet (I did ask for the price! But no luck.) Sad.
