It all started quite innocently with a run to a local nursery that was clearing out begonias and geraniums for $1 each. We’ve spent several days fighting the grass that had taken over the planting beds, and I wanted to celebrate by planting something cheerful.
When I went to the outside spigot to fill the watering can, I got annoyed by having to push through the overgrown bushes. So I started trimming the azaleas, at which point I got really aggravated at the vine that had overgrown everything and was killing off the azaleas.
From there I moved on to the sad-looking butterfly bush that doesn’t appear to have been cut back in years.
Two hours later, I still haven’t gotten the parsley and thyme planted. Of course, part of the reason for that is because the planting bed where they are going first will be the site of another battle with grass.
And now it’s time to figure out how the county yard waste drop off works.
