On my most recent post, I talked about our new flower bed. I am pleased and proud to say that the mulch went on today. It was a day of firsts for me. My first time hooking (and unhooking) a trailer to our Tahoe, it may not seem like a big deal to anyone, however each first I tackle is really exciting. I was thinking back to when I realized my friend Pat was and is quite the gardener. I remember thinking that could never be me, it’s true, I loved seeing beautiful things growing in yards, it never dawned on me that I could have a hand in that, and that it could be my own yard. Well over the years, with Pat’s and many other friends along the way, I have become “the accidental gardener”. Make no mistake, I have no time for plants that need a lot of tending and can’t stand on their own merit, so to speak….however hardy, no nonsense plants I can really appreciate. So to that end, today was mulching day for the new flower bed, and I am proud to say it is finished. Although having done this for awhile either on purpose or by accident I know that a gardeners work/enjoyment is never done.
