The Palette

The air is filled with anticipation as Monday comes closer. Monday, is the day that my dear friend Helen comes over to help me with what she now refers to as the "friendship garden." Similarly to how it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a buttload lot of people to fill a freaking big flowerbed since I have no money to buy flowers etc. My parents are contributing, my sister, Helen, and perhaps several others (some who may not even know they are contributing ; )

So, the palette is prepared. Actually I have a little bit of tilling the Earth left to do, but at least the weeds, annoying holly bushes and grass are all gone.

If you find blank spots in your garden suddenly, "I'm innocent I say, I'm innocent." I was recently going through my old blogs and saw a picture of my backyard. I used to have grass. Everywhere. Of course the grass in front isn't that great either. It seems to be because of the lack of watering. I'm gonna have to work on that.

  1. Wow! You're making progress. Now the tricky part will be planning. Do you remember what the hodgepodge of furniture looked like in my Lago Vista house? This could well happen to your flower bed. It could end up looking like abstract art.

    I sent a volunteer and have more coming. Not sure how much you're going to try to plant before it gets cold for the winter. I'm mostly thinking "she's ready for spring!"
