Neatness.....a swear word in the garden?

Posted: 27/05/2014 at 09:47

Clari, ironing socks so they are neat in the drawer!!! I just chuck 'em in. No one will see the socks in the drawer or on your feet.

I only like straight lines in moderation, prefer curves. I do like the lawn mown (OH's job) and the edges cut.

I didn't know there were white marsh marigolds.

The garden is looking very wet and a bit battered this morning. Not raining now but more is forecast.

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all, was sunny, now it isn't. Going to see what Mrs. G has put on the "neat" thread. I'm not neat.

Plant id please, just leaves at the mo.

Sorry, don't know, but could they be some sort of salad leaves?

I googled it and I think you are right, but it doesn't harm humans. Makes my skin crawl though!

I'm not neat or tidy, probably overwhelmed! An acre of garden & a big veggie plot, housework, cooking, social life, horses, dog and not getting any younger. And I get distracted, I see a weed, not where I was weeding but elsewhere so first bit doesn't get finished and I'm bound to leave a tool behind, always mislaying secateurs. Or there is a rose to smell or a new flower out, then the phone goes and I never do empty that wheelbarrow, well I do when I next need it! I don't even through away potting compost bags, they might come in handy one day. And if tools break they get left in the tiny shed or the lean too in case I get around to mending them. Need a decent outbuilding for all the "stuff";

Compassion is on my wish list. Might find one at David Austin's in June. Haven't found one in France.

That's very apt then, Scott.

I didn't mention lily properly because she's already a Stargazer Lily, like I'm a pale pink Busy-Lizzie, but I wish I was a rose like in my picture.
