So it wasn't that I forgot Tasha Tuesday yesterday. It was just that I never got a chance to come here and celebrate it. Ah well, that's how it goes. There's a lot going on around here these days, and my mantra has to be "I'll get it done when I get it done."
One thing I did get to do yesterday--- even though it too isnt finished--- is work in my garden. It has been terribly neglected this year because, as it turns out, having a newborn really gets in the way of your gardening, ha! I would look out my kitchen window and just sigh in sadness over the weedy jungle growing out in my garden.
However yesterday a cold front (in July!!) came through and the morning was just deliciously cool and perfect for yard work. I was able to get some time on my own to weed out some of the things that had me sighing and let the plants I actually wanted out there breathe.
Of course its all very humble out there now, especially compared to Tasha's garden. I envy her talent and her climate! I'd love to have a garden as lush and mature as hers. I also think that working in her garden--- and it is some good, dirty work--- kept her fit and sharp. I hope I can have just a fraction of her garden success and health when I'm older!
Today it is gray and still cool, and a drizzle is falling. It is the perfect weather for an English cottage garden, if only it would stay! But this isn't Vermont, and it certainly isnt England either!
I'm hoping I can get out to do some more work soon-- as I've only done a small dent. And dream of next year's garden, when its a bit easier with baby to get things done.
How is your garden doing this summer?
Happy Tasha Tuesday....er, Wednesday!
PS--- Thank you SO MUCH for your awesome response to Monday's post! We've already raised $60 at last count! I hope by friday I can get even more funds together, and I'll make the donation on Saturday.
