Thirteen Things about My Garden
This is Thursday Thirteen #38
1…. I love my garden. It’s where I go to de-stress and or collect my thoughts.
2…. My garden is also where I get one of the best workouts! Cutting, bending, digging, squatting, standing up, bending down, amending soil, adding mulch, lifting heavy bags or shovel fulls of soil … for hours on end? Yeah, that’s a workout!
3…. I’m still not feeling well due to the Crohn’s so, while I say the garden is a workout, I haven’t gotten much of a workout lately as I’ve been ignoring the work that needs to be done in the garden.
4…. I still need to prune at least half of my roses. I have more than 60!
5…. I bought some veggie seedlings and annuals a week and a half ago and I still haven’t planted them.
6…. The cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuces, beets, carrots, beans, and annual flowers need to be planted soon!
7…. Once I’m done planting the new plants, and likely buying more since I only bought a few, I’ll have to get busy putting the red cedar mulch down.
8…. Ok, I told a fib a minute ago, I haven’t totally ignored the garden – I have been keeping an eye on it.
9…. Lately my visits to the garden my include my camera.
10…. Each time I go into the garden I must take at least 100 digital photos of the flowers that have been blooming. I’ve been showing off some of those flowers on this blog, my gardening blog and my photoblog.
11…. We live in a fairly small house, so we created our garden and use it as additional living space.
12…. By this I mean, we entertain our friends in the garden, we have barbeque’s and dinner parties, or just use that lovely space to relax. I even bring my laptop out to the garden at times and do some of my computer/internet work while in the garden.
13…. My favorite time in the garden is coming soon. The roses and other scented flowers will soon bloom and it’s almost intoxicating to be in the garden surrounded by so many beautiful scents all at once. I can’t wait.
Wow, I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I’ve done a Thursday Thirteen Post. It’s about time that I did one isn’t it?
