Tired Tuesday it is! I am sitting on my back deck, extremely grateful when the breeze blows, and hoping to make some semblance of a blog post. I took a few pictures a minute ago, thinking to do an update on the state of my yard. Spoiler alert: it isn’t that great.
My Black-Eyed Susans finally bloomed, no thanks to me weeding them, which I did not.
The other day I did do some clearing out by my fence. Of course I did not take a before picture — who can be bothered by such things when enjoying a rare bout of ambition — but I seem to remember taking a picture of the area for some flowers that had grown there.
You can’t really see the fence.
The expression, “I fought the lawn, and the lawn won,” comes to mind. But to end on a more positive note, our Brown-Eyed Susans are also starting to bloom.
These just magically appeared a few years ago, and this year there are quite a few of them.
So my lawn is not looking as bad as it could look, despite my colossal lack of effort this year. Then again, why am I so hard on myself? I have kept the grass in check, done some work around the edges, pruned the evergreen tree, in short, worked somewhat. One can almost always do more.
So I can sit on my deck and relax with a minimum of guilt. It doesn’t do me any good to shoulda-woulda-coulda anyways. I will just relax myself till the thunder I am hearing gets a little closer. Happy Tuesday, everyone!
