It’s almost the end of September – we are heading into the weekend and it will be October by the time we are out! Time just went flying by, and I did not even realize it. What about you?
2018 was when we started gardening seriously. Flowers in the front patio, and some vegetables in the rear. It’s not an impressive display by any means, but then it’s not nothing either. My contribution to this has mostly been on the menial labor – setting up raised beds, digging up the earth and mixing in compost, helping set up the irrigation system, etc. But there’s no denying – I did enjoy every last bit.
Most days when I start for office in the morning, I like to take a quick break right outside the door. It’s a treat to look at all the flowers that have bloomed – shades of pink, yellow, and orange. In the evenings, it’s another few minutes spent staring into the rear yard. It’s a multitude of shades of green across the veggies. Come to think of it, that’s the best de-stresser that I have experienced in some time (other than spending time with the kids, that is).
I have a feeling that I will continue to have this pleasure for at least a few more years.
I’ll take it for as long as I get it.
