I’m making a quick notation about this winter’s weather so I could see later how the garden responds. This winter we had a lot of snow and COLD. This picture was taken on the worst day of a particularly brutal week. We had frost forming on the inside trim of our windows! Then the temperatures rose to the 40s about a week later, and much of the snow melted. We’ll see in the spring how that will affect my garden’s roses, hydrangeas, and fruit trees.
What is CHEZ REA?Rea is my last name, and Chez Rea is what we call our home and family. That’s French for the Rea House, and it rhymes. Say “shay ray” and you’re pronouncing it right. Thus I call my garden the CHEZ REA GARDEN.
What is A WELL WATERED GARDEN?
I've chosen this title for my garden journal because I hope that sharing what's going on in my garden would be refreshing to others who visit this site as well as to myself. Also, the title alludes to a Bible verse, Isaiah 58:11, and reminds me of how God feeds and restores my soul just like water nourishes and strengthens my garden. I want to be LIKE A WELL-WATERED GARDEN!
"The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be LIKE A WELL-WATERED GARDEN, like an ever-flowing spring."
Isaiah 58:11 (NLT©)
