April 25, New York Long Island Rainy Day

April 25, New York Long Island Rainy Day

My name is Michael Rosenberg and I love to garden. I love to get dirty. I love soil, and leaves and rocks and birds and anything associated with all things growing. I adore fungi especially mycorrhiza (Definition)  The symbiotic association of the mycelium of a fungus with the roots of certain plants, such as conifers, beeches, or orchids. mycorrhizal, pl. mycorrhizae (-z) or mycorrhizasSorry, just an outside note:  I was out last night singing and supporting my baby sister, at a bar, in her band. I thought she was great. So I woke up with a headache and my ears ringing (the headache was from the excessive gardening I did before the bar).

. to my first time BLOGGING, Garden journal. A Day In The Life, Walking With Michael Rosenberg Through the Gardens. The gardens are mine, my clients and any other environment I find that needs viewing and possible help. Every garden needs help, that is if they are man-made. This is one fact everyone doesn’t truly understand. It makes me crazy when someone wants to put a plant into the ground and expect it to be “no-maintenance”.  There is no such thing as no maintenance unless you live in the amazon or the poles.

So again I say here I am and I am about to venture on my first garden walk and afterward you are invited to read and experience what I see and how I think. If you have any love of plants, gardens, nature and how it is all connected to us you are the one I am looking  to have a relationship with. It will not always be easy and I won’t always be kind and positive. The one thing I will always be is honest. It can get me in trouble but it is all worth it.

I promise it won’t be boring and it may even be funny and exciting, I hope.  You will find my life as a son, my life as a husband, my life as a father, brother, son-in-law, friend and anything else I attempt to be in here. So welcome to my life as a planting, gardening fiend.  If I don’t know it, I will attempt to learn it. If I stumble and fall, I hope you are all there to laugh and cry with me throughout the process.

So good luck and enjoy the journey.

    I’m sitting now on my sister’s lanai on Marco Island looking at palm trees swaying in the gentle and dreaming of the gardens I want to plant in my own backyard in Lynbrook. This is my first project during my retirement which begins when school closes in a few short weeks. Thank you for the BEAUTIFUL blog and the WONDERFUL words.. I wish I’d found you sooner… and I’m glad I found you NOW,
