I wish I hadn’t Come Out Here

I have two reasons for wishing I hadn’t come out here.

First of all, it is so beautiful (if you don’t look too close!) I want to stay out here instead of going back inside where all the stuff I REALLY need to do is.



The perennials apparently loved the combination of rain/mild weather. They are going nuts – especially the petunias. They look like they are on a mission to take over the world.


I SWEAR I didn’t plant these. Or at least I don’t remember doing it.


And secondly, if you do look close there is so stinkin’ much that needs to be done. Oh, my. Yes, spring has arrived, and with it, a much needed clean up.




Where is that dang to-do list? It just got longer.

I feel a trip to the nursery coming on. But it is socially irresponsible to do that when we are in a water crunch, right? But I have drip irrigation (and so far they haven’t said we shouldn’t use that) and if I am going to try to save any of the foundation plants (bushes, trees) I have to use it, which means if there aren’t any flowers I’m watering dirt, and that’s not right either, right?

Maybe just a little trip to the nursery…

  1. How beautiful to know spring has sprung somewhere. We still have snow on the ground.

  2. Thanks for the reminder that Spring will be here eventually! 🙂

    • You’re welcome, Amy. After 25 years in the snow, I have to say I don’t miss it. BUT, at least then we weren’t so worried about lack of water. A gorgeous spring does have it’s drawbacks, but I hope yours arrives soon.
