Here in little MidWest towne, it is cold and dreary. Lovely. It has been oppressively hot and humid for so long that the drab day is a welcome guest. It is great to be able to open the windows and feel a cool breeze through the house. I may even have to change into actual pants today because I’m getting goosebumps from the breeze! Awesome 🙂
This kind of weather doesn’t get me down (in most cases), but the sudden, drastic change in barometric pressure does affect my health. Therefor, I am feeling groggy and lazy today. So you would think I would just stay under the covers with a good book, my doodle pad, and my mp3 player, right? Of course not! It’s time to get housework done.
I did a little housework and then realized that I wanted to get outside a bit. What a perfect day to weed the garden! And what a delightful little garden it is turning out to be this year.
It’s not much. It measures probably two by six feet. But it’s mine and it’s gorgeous. Half of it is doing marvelously. Miss Marigold is turning into a small bush about as big as my head. She’s getting a little big for her britches because she’s pushing the boundaries of the garden fence. But she’s beautiful. Miss Celadona is getting quite a head on her shoulders.. maybe too large of one. Her stems can’t seem to hold her head up anymore. But she is gorgeous. I was worried about Mr.Snapdragon, but he’s doing great now. He is just the runt of the litter.
As I said, half of it is doing great. The other three feet.. eh.. not so good. I think it is because that’s where the bird feeder is, on the shepard’s crook. The bird shit is probably not so great for the flowers in such large quantities. Maybe a little would make good fertilizer, but apparently a lot makes good dead-a-lizer.
