I part-time love my yard. PART-TIME. It used to be a full time thing for me, but the older I get and the hotter it is outside....frankly, I could care less. Outside is hubs job. He obviously doesn't care. If it were not for my nagging, he would not care about it one bit. I came from a home that was perfect inside and out. My parents are 79 & 80 and both are still spotless. I don't know how they do it. If a pine cone starts to fall at my parents house, the joke is that my mom or dad is catching it. They do have a beautiful yard. Me...it's so-so. I can see so many things that I could do....edging the yard for one....more flowers? I could actually clean out my 3 bird baths every now and then....and more of a lot of things. But, I've been keeping it simple lately. Spring is the time that I go nuts and buy flowers, ferns and have a patio that I enjoy. Late Summer, you will see my flowers slowly dying....I won't even look out there. It's so hot and humid no one can stand it. Usually when it starts cooling off a bit, I will go and do a weed out and clean out the dead flowers. That has been done. Hub obviously doesn't think so. I can now sit outside and not cringe. A couple of weeks ago, I noticed a few things....flowers....blooming....showing up in places that I've never planted and WITHOUT any water from me.
Take a peek!
Here's a recent picture!
If it's not on this rack....it's in the cabinet right above it!
Anyway....my gardening is closed down until the Spring. Some things grow regardless!!! How does your garden grow?
