The Things I Did Not Do


I did not thin this ground cover nor did I thin the money plants.  Both need it or they are going to force out all the plants we so carefully placed.
I did not weed these beds around the water garden.
The nice thing about all the rain is
everything grows.
Things we have planted and
things we have not.
The valley is good for growth...all kinds, especially spiritual.
These are the pecans Mom and Dad planted
when they first got married.

Boy I have a whole list of things I did not do. I still think every thing looks wonderful. If you would save me some money seed I would be great full.

I love that the pecan trees your folks planted are still there!

Rae said...

Reminds me of all the weeding and thinning I need to get at. Outdoor work is never done. Seems like something always needs tending to.

Things certainly look very fertile around your home. The pecan trees are beautiful.

Betcha my "things I did not do" list is longer than yours : ) Love the story with the pecans. My parents planted a pecan tree for me the year I was born that is still standing on the homeplace.

Lots os stuff I haven't gotten done outside too.

Those pecans are immense! The ones here seem to want to spread out instead of get tall.

I've never lived in a lush climate like that. Overgrown is a word doesn't have the same meaning for me.

Yeah I'd be putting off that weeding until that copperhead hibernates next winter!!!! Be safe and God bless!

My "things I did NOT do" list always seems to be longer than my "things I did do" list!

Wow. Looks like a jungle of lush growth there. Everything has basically stopped growing here without any rain or snowfall. We're back to desert conditions again.
Enjoy all your greenery!

It's like that in the Netherlands. Everything grows, but the weeds the best. Never saw so many.

you posted on your blog
Life is good.
