To introduce myself,
my name is Posey,
and I am a character in Karen's series.
Karen thinks she made me up,
but I know better.
I've gardened all my life, from a gracious estate in Hampshire, England
to the high-desert hills of Wenatchee, Washington.
From this, I like to imagine I have something to share with you..
.a pocketful of knowledge,
a bit of encouragement,
a handful of pictures.
It would give me joy to connect with other gardeners out there
and to share what we each have learned.
Gardening, I have found, is like most things in life,
a process, a never-ending cycle.
It is a beautiful mixture of science and art.
And it's also a lot of work.
When I go back inside and wash the soil off my hands,
stretch my tired back,
then stand at the window and look at what was accomplished,
it's always worth it.
