By definition, a work in progress is an unfinished project that is still being added to or developed.

For the second spring season, I have been nurturing my gardening skills. As a beginner, I planted annuals literally thinking I only had “to do the job” once and they would grow back every year. I was mistaken and only enjoyed the fruit of my labor for a season.

This year I was advised by family members with a green thumb that perennials or flowers that live more than two years are the best flowers to plant and will give you a return on your investment.

To the natural eye or looking from the outside, a person, place or thing may seem to be thriving “overnight” but the proof is not what is on display; it is in the root. Being able to tell the difference is the key to fully cultivating the finished product: you.
