When the name of the street (in which one’s dream house is situated) has ‘clay’ in it…shouldn’t the light bulb turn on somewhere in the grey matter..?
Moving into the new house in snowy/frigid February didn’t help either. So come April, snow has adieu’d & I am all ready for a backyard garden.
Gardening tools..’check’, crocs…’check’, perennials…’check’ & my first attempt to dig into the soil?……eh…not so ‘check’. I almost lost my balance at the resistance. Clay in my backyard says ‘hello’ to the clay in my grey matter.
For several minutes I stood staring at the ground hoping I would suddenly, magically find my inner ‘super-human’ power. Not knowing what to do is annoying by itself but having Joe Left and Joe Right, yes believe it or not I am flanked by neighbours with first name Joe, walk over and give me ‘Digging- 101″ ummmmmmmmmm….!
Anyway all thru April and May, I painstakingly prevailed and toiled on 8 x 2 flower-patch and in July…ta da
ummmm here they are lovely lillies and pretty pansies…!!! This is an ongoing project and I’ll keep adding more as they bloom. Meanwhile enjoy and if you are out there house-hunting do pay a little attention to the street name. It may give you a hint!
