is nothing shy of pure pleasure!

There's no doubt maintaining a beautiful, healthy garden takes "work", but the spirit of gardening being pleasurable work is instilled in all the articles to be found on the dozens of pages here at YRGardening.ca.    Mucking in the dirt as a hobby can elicit many amusing reflections on what the heck we're doing sometimes though, so there's also lots of just-for-fun reading that shares some amusing or thoughtful asides on this very rewarding craft. 

 After playing in the dirt and collecting plants for over 30 years, I thought it was time to start sharing all the writing put together over my years of teaching classes and running a garden services business (GARDEN POSSIBILITIES Services) that has been just collecting dust in old files on my laptop.  Explore the "Site Map Index" for all the articles pages to help grow your  gardening knowledge ... inspire further exploration ... and guide your shopping adventures.   Hope you have time to browse around!
