Perhaps it's not all bad, as it gives us time to think and reflect in the garden. While my passion is to travel and I love to discover new places, gardens and learn the history, it's making me think about here and now and what we can do while in self-isolation.
Now self-isolation means different things to different people. For me right now, it's the start of spring and a magical time in the garden and starting to think about the this year's garden. Designing a garden takes time and starting now is a great time of year for that (of course, we are still here, and happy to help you with all your design needs).
I love the daffodils and all the blossoms, but I'm definitely waiting for the magnolia to bloom, that has a special place in my mind. Gardens, springtime, and blooms have a way of unconsciously helping us to mark time and events. Our gardens can be a place where all the craziness in the world melts away and the beauty new life and a hopeful future can be embraced.
So we embrace the garden for a peaceful isolation while waiting for the world to come back to normal when the waiting will be over.
