I’ve been a good girl! True to my word from my last post, I’ve been staying offline more, getting caught up with things. And one of the first places I turned to was the garden.
Oh goodness. It needed me. And it wasn’t until I got out there that I quickly realized, I needed it just as much.
Gardeners know how therapeutic gardening really is. Ok, lighter gardening is. Heavy duty gardening is very hard work. My little yard is still beyond what I can comfortably keep up with by myself, but I can do pretty much everything myself in my own time.
But a little more transpired during the garden cleanup than I anticipated. As I was yanking weeds and piling up clippings, the amount that had to be cleaned up was a little staggering.
What I thought would be a quick little afternoon among a few weeds turned into a main event.
This is exactly what happens in life when you let things slide. Or choose to forget about them. The workload doesn’t go away… it accumulates. Just like a garden gone wild.
But there is good news. When you focus back on what you need to, your yard is forgiving and offers you a second chance.
Flowers will keep blooming if you keep doing your part. Thank goodness for second, third and even fourth chances!
This little garden gone wild therapy session did lots of good. My yard is in reasonable order once again. The lawn is neatly cut, the flowerbed edges trimmed, and every weed has been pulled. And I plan to keep on that course, for when I take care of things that need me more than say… Pinterest, I know my world will thank me.
Oh, and one last thing.
My apologies for using my iPhone rather than the fancy camera and for not capturing anything truly Pinterest worthy.
I was busy gardening.
Proud of me?
