A Dose of Patience

Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.

Cordyline Fruticosa

Bellingrath Gardens is a wonderful place to slow down. Wander along the pathways, taking in the beauty overwhelming the senses. Snap lots of pictures and plan to include a few gorgeous specimens in one’s own landscape. Shady landscapes will benefit from the above exotic, cordyline fruticose or ti plant. Ti plants cannot endure frigid weather, but container gardening will allow them to be rescued when the thermometer drops. So, now’s the time to get that dose of patience.
