Garden magic

I went out to water last night, around 8:30 p.m., and was surrounded by lots of fireflies the whole time (and no mosquitoes!), which was magical. I was singing as I watered, Bill Staines’s lovely “Prairie Song,” and feeling both slightly goofy but also very happy. And then a young woman walked by with her dog, and I paused my singing to say hi, and she said hi, and then she said, in intense tones, “You have the most beautiful garden I’ve ever seen.”
She was a very young woman, and I am guessing she hasn’t actually seen that many gardens yet. But it was still a pretty perfect moment. 🙂

  1. Is it a good idea to water in the night/late evening? I thought that it’s best to water during the early part of the day, so the sun facilitates the process of root growth and absorption of water. My understanding was that watering in the late evening would cause mold and fungus to develop.
