I am Frazzled

I am frazzled ... things have gone wonky for me lately ... the blog and garden have suffered for it.
I chased down my landscaper yet again this morning and he swore he and the crew would be here tomorrow morning ... I think I told him I would cry if he didn't show up .. my mind was so fried I am not totally sure I said that but I know I was feeling it.
Once you announce on a public forum that you are having landscaping done and some readers become interested ... you commit yourself darn it !!
So ... IF they actually come tomorrow .... in a few days I might have some before and after pictures.
If they don't show up ??? ... you will hear me sobbing where ever you live !!
Mean while, a few of the non black spot plague roses ?

This is my favorite picture of Ilse Krohn .... kind of dreamy atmosphere

Sounds like its time for a ultimatum to this landscape company. If they realize that their tardiness will result in no moolah they might get their butts in gear! It is terribly frustrating though..... go find some solace in the garden!

Contractor problems seem to be a common theme lately, whether on Facebook or in blogs. My friend waited for weeks for the contractor remodeling her kitchen to show up--I'm pretty sure they lived on take-out pizza for a month:) 'Julia Child' is such a beauty; I'm tempted to tear out my 'Radsunny' Knockouts and replace at least one of them with Julia.

This time of year, with three birthdays in the house and the start of the kids' school year all within 3 weeks, leaves me feeling frazzled and wonky too! At any rate, your roses are gorgeous, and I do hope your landscaper shows up soon! Your blog fandom cannot be kept waiting much longer, after all!

Hope things ease up for you soon!--Kimberley

Sweetie they did arrive yesterday .. just waiting for them today now .. can't wait for the rain tonight though .. the garden is so dry and I couldn't water so hopefully the rain will quench some of the thirst.

NanaDiana, Thank You!!

Rose girl contractors are a force of their own doing that can drive us crazy .. but here they are now and fingers crossed ! You have to get a Julia, she is so worth it!

A simple "Your ass is fired if you don't finish the job" usually resolves things. Your roses are beautiful. :o)
