Holiday greetings to Chicago gardeners

See also

Chicago gardeners, here we are in the middle of this glorious, year-end season of holidays. It’s a delightful time to share gardening delights from the growing season. Fruits and vegetables that you preserved in a variety of ways make holiday dinners special. Flowers you dried make lovely displays. Nursery plants throughout your house celebrate the season. Your Christmas tree brings the joy of tradition into your home.

Gardeners know about the natural world of diversity. They enjoy it through their indoor and outdoor gardens. They understand the beauty of each plant. They prefer some plants over others, but that doesn’t mean they deny the beauty and uniqueness of nature.

Respect for this diversity in the natural world is something gardeners show all year. They make sure all the specific needs of their various plants are met. They give their plants the right amount of sunlight, water and food. They grow their plants in a soil blend that will help them thrive. They protect their gardens from harmful pests and vegetation.

Gardening makes life happier, healthier and more beautiful. Gardeners celebrate this joyful holiday season with the gifts their garden provided all year. Chicago and the rest of the nation are in the middle of all the fun. So gardeners, celebrate and be happy. Best wishes from this Gardening-in-Chicago Examiner.

Live long and well—garden.
