Garden Observations In Lieu of Housework

Despite the fact that I know the misery of a Louisiana summer is just around the corner, I can’t help but revel in the perfect Spring weather. As you can see, the hydrangeas are blooming, which happens to be my favorite flower. I plan to grab some shears tomorrow and clip some flowers to put around the house. Even though my housework is sadly neglected in recent days, I grabbed the camera after work, and spent an hour snapping pictures and watching the guys play catch. After all, who needs clean underwear anyway?

Our vegetable garden appears to be thriving, probably because I keep my green-thumb-of-death far, far away. I call it an altruistic act of garden preservation…my husband calls it flat-out laziness. Who cares, as long as it lives?

We still have plenty of work and tinkering to do around the yard, but I managed to solicit (read: draft) some volunteers. I may or may not have said, “come on, put your back into it,” in the seconds before this photo was taken.

Just kidding! He WANTED to play with the shovel…really!

If you’ll excuse me, I have a bathroom to clean…

Send wine, STAT!
