Self-Reviving Plants

As I set up more beds in the garden, I considered taking out plants which had not survived the summer drought.  But I did other gardening chores and forgot to get to those plants.

As the Spring progressed, life returned even to plants that I thought were dead.

I have evidence of life returning to two small grapevines.

My raspberries seem to have grown up a bit more and may become plants instead of running all across the ground.

My comfrey has been planted and is reviving.

Two pots with herbs have been moved outside and are also growing once again.

I watered my entire yard by hand today and noticed revival where I did not expect it.

Perhaps I had been too discouraged by what I saw last summer.

And yet, the plants were going dormant, waiting for better conditions.

I am glad to see them.
