Out Standing in My Field

I am so happy! After being gardenless throughout the past summer, I now am a proud member of the community garden and have a 20'x20' plot of my very own to muck about in. It was a very overgrown bit of land, and so I have been contentedly indulging in one of my favourite pastimes - weeding! I've unearthed strawberries, raspberries, chives, parsley, garlic, irises, lupins and sorrel. I know there are hollyhocks and poppies lurking around the perimeter. It's like a treasure hunt.
James came to pick me up yesterday and said he knew where to find me by the sight of my rear end sticking up in the air. Hmm, saucy lad. Watch out, mister, I've got a trowel and I know how to use it!

  1. lovely - there is nothing more calming than digging in the dirt, sounds like a ready made garden once you've banished the weeds. It was wonderful to see you yesterday and meet James. Hope you got home from the big city safely.

    Ah, The Commons! I know that communal garden on Gabriola. Brilliant idea. I visited once and couldn't believe the variety of fresh vegetables and fruit coming out of all those plots of land. Have fun turning your bit into a paradise.

  3. Darling, you must have such a strong back bending like this on the weeds!
