you know that saying?
So much to do … So little time!
I swear I try – I try and I hope and I wish to be in my studio but life keeps getting in the way and other stuff needs doing – and then other stuff becomes fun and then I want to finish it and then I want to do more of it … it is a vicious circle – or more of a happy circle given the fact that most of what gets in the way is something I enjoy doing!
I am known for my garden-loath (that is a word I am sure I just made up!) … I really do not like gardening – but then something happened this week. Something I always forget can happen – even to me … I e n j o y e d myself in the garden … I had fun out there and who would have ever thought!
It started out with the herb garden – I wanted to make sure I got it done this year so I decided early on last week that I’d plant it this weekend. And for once my plans worked out
and then I don’t know what happened – but 9 hours … NINE whole hours went by and by the end I had torn down a vine, dug out plants we never liked and planted wonderful strawberries AND rhubarb – and some edible flowers that I cannot remember the name of!
Oh and then we tore down the ugly (very very ugly!) fence around our pool – this worries me slightly but I am hoping I’ll get used to it … our garden looks very different from Saturday morning when I gently started planting some rosemary … it is like the Michelin man of gardens came by …
What’s his name again?
