I also think gardening is great because I am a perfectionist and gardening is really helpful for learning to moderate that tendency a bit – every year something is doing amazingly and something else is just completely destroyed by something unpredictable.

My boss, R (not that one), in the gardening channel today.

I just love that description, her insight, and her self-awareness.

I also learnt today that I should resist sharing my half baked thoughts with her. Rather fully bake them, decorate them with beautiful icing, and top them off with a cherry before sharing 🙂
