So… something happened after Journal 3 – just getting on with it. As your comments have come gratefully pouring in, my little brain went KABOOM… and I started hustling.
I promise to sit down and read your wonderful comments tonight…. I’m excited at what you had to say!
But I think it’s safe to say, the theory has busted me out of the poor me zone, and there’s been lots of good things happening as a result.
My garden is never done. Ever. But most recently when feeling overwhelmed, I’ve gone to plunk my sorry self on the lawn near the soil, to pull a few weeds.
That move has had an impact. It’s given me something mindless to focus on. I can still think about stuff, but I’m also productive.
And I knew just where to focus.
I had this two full pallet walkway in the front yard that had rotted to nothing. Heaving the saturated and broken boards to the dump, this glorious weed filled dirt patch was waiting in return.
So I poked through the shrubs in search of a well hidden bird bath. Finally, a proper place for it!.
A cement stepping stone was put into place under the birdbath first, to offer stability.
This little spot has potential! The perennials around it are pretty wonderful, for me not having planted or maintained it. It just needed cleaning up.
And then there’s that bucket… hmm….
I really love garden junk placed where there are no plants yet. They make great garden fillers.
Next up, a little flower garden bed edging took place.
With results OUTSTANDING as always
Ahhh… smart girl. Grabbing my shovel, I dug up this clump of… purple? 🙂 Then simply placed the bucket on its side behind them.
I LOVE the illusion of the flowers spilling out of it!
I was really loving how everything was coming together.
And I should also say this. I’m not one of those people where my garden showcases a lot of soil. I love everything to have a farmyard rambling look. To me it’s very full and natural.
Which means, things tend to get overgrown. Quickly!
So I cut a few things back, but for the most part, most stayed put.
Remember the barrel garden orb HERE?
Get on with it, indeed.
Have you done anything fun to your garden yet?
