Growing Used to The Idea and Inspired too.
Week two and I am still getting used to being home..
I made a new address sign this weekend. Our old one disolved in the rains last winter.
I am getting really inspired by my garden and hopefully next week I will have a project based on all the pretty flowers. In the mean time it is great getting things squared away out there...a little at a time..
Weed wise, we are in the absolute shit. We let the weeds go to seed last year and some more got away from me this spring and summer due to sheer multitudes . Now I am guessing we are about two years behind in having some sense of civility out there. I have to limit my time in the garden becauase I get obsessed.. (I could do that full time too...Grow stuff..)
I guess I am going to need to meet it half way and let it be just a little bit wild.. Wild Garden.. Have you ever seen one? Where I grew up was a quaint gold rush town. small and sleepy.. Sometimes there would be an empty lot where a house had been torn down and there would be a lilac and a rose bush, some fruit trees and bulbs that would sprout and bloom in the spring.. all brambly and twisted..like a ghost planted them. A garden with no house to tame it. Just an old rusty gate where the rest of the fence had fallen down.
A garden in the woods probably should be somewhat that way anyhow...
