How Do You Rate Your Garden?
I may not be the only one who looks at her garden with hopeful eyes, seeing small roses already as mature and sickly ones as healthy again as in past times, ignoring the fried blooms, etc., in other words with rose colored glasses.
What I'm curious about is how you would rate your garden now, with whatever deficiencies it may have, or more work to be done, or plants to be changed, but still looking at it with a clear eye as it appears NOW. Those of you who have had hard winters and don't have much in bloom yet are allowed to imagine it with bushes abloom, but other than that no cheating please! This is a difficult one for me with huge temperature spikes, the likes of which I've never seen in spring, and many small roses that I'm pinching the buds on or that haven't bloomed yet, and fried blooms from the heat. Taking all that into consideration I would give it a 65 to 70% rating.
How about the rest of you?
