I recently heard Sydney Eddison talk about "Time and the Garden." At 78, she talks and writes about down-sizing her extensive gardens. Ease of management has become her top priority.
Widowed in 2004, she says what every widow knows: Major adjustments are needed. She has had to take on tasks--such as maintenance of the lawn mower--in which she is not really interested. More and more she pays other people to help her maintain her spectacular gardens.
We are all of the nature to grow old--even our beautiful gardens that become more shady with maturing shrubs and trees.
Sydney Eddison shows us a garden plan for aging and garden-aging gracefully.
