Life in the Slow Lane.....

I'm sitting here just a little antsy to be off doing something different, something exciting perhaps, certainly something better than face booking my morning away. Yes I have seen some amazing "things" on-line - gorgeous trees houses, inventive coffee cups, creative videos of just about everything....etc...etc.... I love looking at what others have done, but it does create a restlessness in me, a desire to be one with that creative force myself - always dangerous.

Orange Lilies

Currently my main creative outlet, besides my business, is my garden. In fact, over the last 10 days I have spent six of them working in the garden, at least 5-6 hours a day. I may have exhausted my garden quotient :) I know that I still have to saw some rather large limbs from a spreading yew that has overspread itself and I do have to turf out all those day lilies in the shade that never bloom and replace them with Rudbeckia, which always blooms from July to late September - I could populate another planet with Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia), Hosta and Lady's Mantle.

Lavender and Hosta

Unfortunately, I won't be rewarded for my efforts until next year, when all those limp transplants are firmly established and all those pruned bushes have "filled themselves in" - an interesting concept. I wish it applied to fauna as well as flora!

Lady's Mantle and carpet roses

No there are few "quick fixes" for the gardener and today I need a quick fix. I am thinking 3D pen or walking marathon - totally opposite concepts. Neither of which is quick. The pen I'm sure has a learning curve and for the walk to be a "marathon," I would have to double my usual 2.5 miles. Then again I could walk to Deserres for the pen!! Hmmmm

Have a great day!

  1. I do miss puttering in my garden sometimes. But then living in a condo does free us up to travel when we want.
