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…
