My garden in the winter lays quietly under the snow, sleeping, resting, languishing in its frozen state waiting to be called from its snowy icy slumber when the snow melts and the spring sunshine slowly warms the earth.
All the weeds are enjoying the snow cover, I think they like the party atmosphere of a snow bank and they multiply under there all winter long. Not a one of them dies from the harsh winter or the frost heaving the ground…every spring they attack the perennials with renewed pleasure..
Parts of the garden that we used to till are now mowed..plants have reseeded in spots they have chosen..some plants like the Lupines just sow themselves and grow wherever their seed lands. I gave up on weed control..it is what it is..weeds are beautiful too.
Life is too short to be concerned with how many weeds you have in your garden..if you waste all your time on the weeds you will forget what you really planted your garden for..
the flowers..the ones that are strong enough and tall enough to live amongst the weeds.
Two things happened recently.
The first: Nanna nanna boo boo..God is going to get you..and I will stand at the side lines and clap. A Doctor at a local clinic is finally being sued for malpractice…it is way past time..I would testify against her ( Doctor She Devil) in a heartbeat. If you think that sounds cruel..perhaps it is..but having a license to practice medicine does not give you the right to batter your patients. Someone finally had the guts to stand up and say..enough is enough.
The second : My girls are 35 and 38 years old..well this year they will be 36 and 39..but that is the point..hopefully they will both celebrate their birthdays this year. I have a friend in blogland whose son died yesterday morning..he was 33. His death was anticipated after the cancer diagnosis last June. Cancer never wins..Nathaniel won in the end..he tromped all over cancer as he marched victorious into heaven:)
