OK .. truth be told my poor husband has been subbing as my "garden PA" ... as in personal assistant.
I find myself in situations when my time frame for getting things done shrinks so quickly it is shocking.
I absolutely hate wasting time running for tools I missed or misplaced .. needing the hose ... needing a big refuse bag for ripped out weeds (lets face it I am lacking in that department sadly) but general plant matter that is headed for the city compost heap.
I was bent over in the front bed doing my best, after a huge struggle both hubby and I had ripping out an old vine on a side bed, that had to be redone from scratch .. believe me some vines route themselves to China and it is one heck of a mission to dig them out ! .. the ouch factor today for both of us is off the scale.
But I digress .. I said to husband .. forgetting how the neighbors can hear quite well on our street ..
" Sweetie I so need a garden PA just for a few weeks each Spring ... seriously ... a PA to run and fetch and clean up after me as I bulldoze through all the chores and missions I have !" he laughed of course.
I was serious ! ... a neighbor from across the street spoke up to me and said "you must have been an officer?" ... meaning I am very good at giving orders or organizing ? haha
Seriously how many of us would be in seventh heaven if we had such a being that would do all of that for us?
Clean up ... run and fetch ... and finally put everything away when we were done and lock up the shed ..
Help us up the deck stairs and through the door to the shower ... well maybe that is a bit too personal with the shower thing .. but for all the rest ? Hell YES !!!
It is a rain day today ... so we are moaning and groaning and resting up for the next few days that are not supposed to rain ... and the list of garden missions is HUGE once again.
Give me strength garden gods so I may do right by my garden and all the lovely plants !!
And ... maybe a garden PA is hiding in the garden some where ready to pop out and help me ? wink wink
Meanwhile ... just a few shots of the garden GROWING at light speed .. I can't work fast enough to keep up with plant supports and tying up !
We are going to have landscaping done with the flagstone foot path .. and maybe if the price is right redo our back fence so it is taller and more private ... that would be a dream come true (if I can't have a garden PA? )
I will relish the pathways and the dream of a new fence !
Soloman's Seal literally stretches UP as we watch it ... please lets be reasonable garden of mine ... slow down just a wee bit and let me breath ?
