A Gardener in the Spring
Ah…spring. That lovely time of the year where everything in the garden shows signs of new life. Including the gardeners!
So we rush outside and begin to cover everything that is newly planted in the ground. We drag all the beautiful containers that we created into the garage, back porch, or kitchen. And we begin to have a conversation with ourself.
“What were you thinking! You know that this always happens! Why can’t you just be patient and wait for the frost danger to pass? Think of the money you have wasted! When will you learn?”
I hate that conversation. No one talks to me quite like I talk to myself.
Maybe one spring I will have the will power to resist the first signs of color and beauty. Until then, I will continue to keep all the old sheets I can for those frosty times that are sure to come.
