I’m feeling rather nostalgic today and linking with Nancy for random thoughts.
Nostalgic because it’s the WordPress weekly photo prompt and I have that on my mind, but also because I’ll be leaving in a couple of days and C and I have been in the garden this morning
cleaning up trying to clean up the weeds and plants before I leave, and I’m looking round the garden and thinking, wow, I’m growing all the plats my grandfather loved the most.
In his garden I remember rows of portulacas, and I grow them every year. You know what? Their little seeds are like tiny silver beads of mercury and the most fascinating thing a child can hold in her little hand.
Why is it that the minute you pull up a weed it just makes room for 17 more weds to grow? But the raspberries are shading all the weeds out. Maybe growing raspberries everywhere it the answer.
Also, I’ve decided that if you can’t beat ’em, let ’em be. This seven foot tall iron structure is where the red runner beans are supposed to grow, but somehow a few have escaped to the bronze fennel and the sweet pea gate. Whatever…grow happy little beans.
I think that yellow and purple are the queen of colour combinations! The absolute ruling monarch. I’m so going to try for more yellow and purple round here.
C took this photo of me today and did something funky with it and stuck it on her Instagram. Yes, I can see that dandelion laughing at me from between the bricks. No I probably don’t have time to pull it up before I go.
