A Little Piece Of Pretty
I have been feeling a little frustrated lately about making a living eating in to my time to make a life. I like to garden and take a lot of pride in my yard. It is big and it is a mature garden so it takes some work to keep it all under control. We had beautiful weather on Sunday so I spent the day in the front yard, you know, the one people driving by can see. I ran out of steam before I finished, but I made a good dent in it.
I walked in the back yard and stood on my patio and all I could see was all the work needing to be done. Not very gratifying or relaxing!
So last night I came home and cleaned out one small bed that is front and center to my eyes when I am on the patio. I think I dug out at least 8 of those pesky ferns that invade EVERYWHERE in my yard. Those stinkers will inherit the earth! Tonight I stopped at the green grocer on my way home and treated myself to 10 zonal geraniums. I don't typically buy many annuals but I need a little piece of pretty to rest my eyes on.
Big sigh. So pretty!
