However, there is a difference between watching and enjoying someone's well articulated garden and getting your hands dirty working the soil, planting, trimming and keeping the weeds out. The difference is in the level of satisfaction. Gardening, to me, is definitely about burying my hands into the soil. Satisfaction comes from putting in a good amount of effort to carve a bare piece of land into a work of art. However, I do believe its always a work in progress, changing the picture from time to time according to the mood, taste and for some others, season. As I live in a tropical country, the season here is the same throughout the year.
I am aware of the thousands, perhaps tens of thousand of bloggers out there who are way ahead of me when it comes to knowledge and experience about gardening. With this blog, I look forward to sharing what I know and hope to expand my knowledge by learning from others what I don't.

Gardening without the knowledge of plants, in my opinion, is bound for failure. But having said that, failures are sometimes necessary as they provide opportunities for us to learn from our mistakes and to improve our techniques.
