A Look Back – 2020

So many folks are pleased to see this year in the rearview. It’s been a strange one, that’s for certain. I haven’t hated it because it held plenty of joy for me personally, including the birth of a precious, second grandson, but I’ve hated the pain and suffering the year held for many.

I find it’s impossible to immerse myself in the garden and not stay focused on a bright future. In the Coppertop gardens, a few 2020 standouts shine:

In January, the new snowblower was put to good use.
Late winter brought four additional raised beds in the veg garden.

We sang a beloved hymn at our daughter’s wedding one week ago that ended with:

Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!”
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
“Great is Thy faithfulness, ” Lord, unto me!

  1. Your daughter married last week? Wonderful! It did me good to look back at my photos of this year to remind me of all the highlights, and it is so nice to see you also have had a good year in the garden. Happy New Year to you and your family March!

  4. What a lovely look back, and your gardens are outstanding! Those bulbs and peonies will certainly be something special to anticipate. And I’m sure you put those four new beds into good use, too.
