A list of New Year resolutions gardeners and rescuers.
In the new year I vow to:
Nurture more. Feed the earth with organic nutrients; plant smaller to grow stronger; and mulch…mulch…mulch.
Protect more. Save precious resources with earth-friendly products, preventative pest measures, and judicious use of water – something that will be in short supply again this year.
Re-use more. One man’s garbage is gardener’s compost; cuttings and divides extend the garden and can be shared with others to create their own.
Welcome wildlife. The garden is for sharing with all.
Even those mischievous bunnies.
And appreciate the beauty of all seasons – including the dry, dead stalks of winter.
Resolution thoughts for my rescuer friends:
“Accept the pain, cherish the joys,
resolve the regrets; then can come the best of benedictions – ‘If I had my life to live over again, I’d do it all the same’” ~ Joan McIntosh
Welcome the New Year with joy.

All good resolutions. We wish everyone there a very joyous new year.
(There are a lot of plants that deter bunnies – English Ivy, Ferns, etc. Maybe some of those would help?)

Good idea! Than you. Happy New Year to you as well.
Love your resolutions and photos. Well, except for one – the snake. Regardless of size, they scare me to death. May all your pups find forever homes in the new year, and a since thank you goes to all of your volunteers for all of their hard work.
May 2014 be a wonderful year for you, the garden and those gorgeous doggies, Happy New Year!
