I haven’t spent as much time doing any gardening of my own lately. In fact, I left my own garden while it was still dormant for the winter. I haven’t really been able to appreciate (in person) my own style of gardening for a while, which is a bit difficult for me. That means its time for an garden collection… of big leaves!
There are many different reasons that people garden. There are probably as many garden favorites as there are gardeners, if not more. If you have seen the name of this website, you can probably guess what my favorite aspect of my garden is. Big leaves aren’t something that you usually see at the beginning of a garden, simply because they take time to grow. When I put time and effort into my garden, and I get big, green, velvety, shiny, water-collecting leaves in return, I just want to sit there are be happy.
Gardening, by itself, is enjoyable enough to keep me happy. Big leaves, however, are what keep me interested.
There’s always another plant with bigger leaves. Always another variety that looks different. I don’t think I could ever get bored, just looking at the variety of leaves in the world.
