What’s New the Promise Gardens?

What’s new in the Promise Gardens? We have been super busy working in the gardens, garden shows, photoshoots and preparing for the Children’s Photoshoot in July! We did find a bit of time to plant our usual favorites for summer — veggies! There is just something really special about fresh “I grew them myself” in the garden veggies and herbs! Try it!

Spring’s Proud-Pied April

From you have I been absent in the spring
When proud-pied April, dress’d in all his trim,
Hath put a spirit of youth in every thing,
That heavy Saturn laugh’d and leap’d with him.
Yet nor the lays of birds, nor the sweet smell
Of different flowers in odour and in hue,
Could make me any summer’s story tell,
Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew:
Nor did I wonder at the lily’s white,
Nor praise the deep vermilion in the rose;
They were but sweet, but figures of delight,
Drawn after you, you pattern of all those.
Yet seem’d it winter still, and you away,
As with your shadow I with these did play.

Sonnet 98, William Shakespeare (1609)
