No plants equals no life. Humans can­not breathe, eat, nor drink without culti­vating plants. The earliest gardens were grown in ancient Egypt for those needing rest in the shade under trees. Persians, Greeks, Romans – who many said they introduced cabbages – and even those in the Middle Ages grew gardens for medic­inal herbs, vegetables, orchards and vineyards. Fast forward to 2019.

Daily gardening chores like watering, weeding, trellising, mulching and har­vesting are fantastic ways to exercise.

The creeping phlox (phlox subulata) is such a beautiful flowering groundcover. She is a true gem in our spring garden. Those yummy blooms are sweetly fragrant, as well. Deer don’t usually go for this creeper, and it’s drought tolerant if you forget to water some weeks.
