Cheering Up My Monday – My Virtual Garden

It’s great to look back on and I sometimes check up on myself with great satisfaction. But, as with many paper records, some day it’ll get lost or damaged.

I’m adding some new tulips to my two online virtual gardens:

  1. The Garden Tags app @gardentags
  2. Royal Horticultural Society

Both sites keep track of all my plants and they fire out timely reminders of maintenance tasks to be attended to. Thanks to both, I never miss a trick.

The three varieties uploaded are Yokohama, Purissima and Orange Emperor. Actual planting to be completed soon. Of course, I do keep a paper record of things, plants I’ve bought, seed lists, what goes where, daily tasks to be done or completed, and so on. It’s great to look back on and I sometimes check up on myself with great satisfaction. But, as with many paper records, some day it’ll get lost or damaged. I suppose it’s good to have the best of both, paper and digital. In any event, it’s the same garden, same beauty, same work & enjoyment.

Writing is good for my head. When head is good so is everything, including some fast biking and slow gardening.

One thought on “Cheering Up My Monday – My Virtual Garden”

  1. I have a large-format hard-backed copybook in the garage – where I leave my wellingtons at the end of the gardening day – and I make a note of what we did in the garden that day, a garden journal of sorts. I was encouraged to do it for a reason which has now passed but continue it for my own interest. It takes a minute at the end of the day, four or five lines.
