I think this photo is an excellent metaphor for the way my spring has been. It's like "the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry."
We seemed to spend hours in the gardens during May. We prepped beds, weeded, weeded, weeded, and spread more than 20 yards of mulch. We moved the vegetable garden to a new, hopefully drier, area. We spent a lot of time getting grass to stop growing in certain areas, and are still trying to get it to grow in other areas. We re-established the serenity trail (aka dirt-bike path).All this was layered with lacrosse games, band concerts, school events, company coming, 8th grade graduation, and the show -- all the hustle and bustle that makes this wonderful life ours (but sometimes makes me tired!). So, we haven't taken the time to just sit back and watch the sunset. Maybe that's what July is for?
