In case you’re wondering, it’s not mine.
I’ve been keeping busy next door at the Mother in Law’s and the beds are much cleaner over there, the shrubs are much neater, the lawn has fewer weeds, and the grass is a much lusher green. She gets compliments on her lawn. I don’t.The effort I put into watering and trimming and fertilizing over there just doesn’t seem worth it in my own garden. I get too distracted by my own cool plants and pay more attention to them than to the dumb old grass and azaleas. Someday I might try for the nicest lawn on the block, but for now I’m much happier with my crowded buzzing flower beds and my mixed up, colorful foundation plantings.
Many plant lovers have excellent, beautifully designed gardens, I’m just saying I’m not there yet 😉
