Back To The Wild Cultivated Gardens

For these last many weeks I would see my garden in the morning light.

I would see it again in the evening light. I might even go for a stroll. I was far too tired to do anything to it and after these many weeks is was beginning to get shaggy.

The Almighty Falls are done and now I can get back to my regular programming.

Sister #1 is coming for a long Labor Day visit. I need to get this place back in shape before then.

The good news is, it isn't the least bit hard. All I have to do is mow a mile or so of paths and one Great Lawn. I start tomorrow in Bulbarella's garden. It has really gone bad.

I might even get around to scraping a layer of crud from the inside of my house. That is not as important as the garden though.

Everybody has house dirt. Very few have a Tall Flower Meadow and wild cultivated gardens.

A good path mowing does wonders to generate a civilized effect.

The better to enjoy what should be a spectacular September bloom.

This post made me laugh at myself thinking about how I always look at the garden first when expecting company. Even when most of my company couldn't care less about my garden. Then I dust the coffee table. From here your garden looks fine.

Really wish you could share with Garden Photo of the Day. I know they would love to see your place.

Lisa the gardens and cool air up here are one of the big draws. Our houses are tiny.

Sallysmom one day maybe there will be decent satellite internet service or the barrage of advertising will be made not to slow things down.
