It’s rain here nonstop for 7 days. Everything is green, wet, and damp. My garden has grown a lot over the week. My tomato plants have finally taken and are growing nicely. I ended up with 12 plants in the ground. Three I had in containers which I suddenly decided this morning would do better in the ground. Now the pots are sitting next to my front step waiting for some annuals.
I love watching the garden grow but I am realizing I’m a bit of anal retentive gardener. I think everything is a mess. I can’t handle all the little plants. It’s seems unorganized and dirty. Thinking about it at my computer makes me squish my face between my brows. A grimace that has caused me early wrinkles.
Most mornings you’ll find me standing on the sidewalk just staring at the plants. In my mind I’m reorganizing all the plants. Placing the Lilies further back and Sedum in the front. I hate that the front part of the garden has too much purple and the leaves are too similar. The back side has a strange height issue. I wonder about tree peonies and how I need to remember to put in Delphinium and Cone Flowers next spring. I’m getting a little ahead of myself. Has a gardener been born or have I found a new hobby to obsess over?
