The Head Gardener Speaks: Somebody Call The Waaa-mbulance!
We were bluer than these Texas Bluebonnets!
It has come to my attention that the last post on this blog was exactly one month ago today. Contrary to what our readers may fear, She Who Must Be Obeyed has NOT come to her wits' end and abandoned the gardens here at Wit's End, the blog or all hope.
Beaten up by the wind but still beautiful
While it is true that both SWMBO and I were grumpy, I am unanimous in my belief that whereas a few moments of whinging and wringing our hands can be therapeutic, it does neither of us any good to carry on for hours or days on end. I therefore was forced to issue an edict that such whinging would cease and desist immediately. For once, SWMBO listened to me and we are at this moment in fine fettle mentally, if not physically. The pollen count has risen alarmingly with the onset of oak tassel season. We'll be congested and itchy-eyed for several weeks to come.
We're working on achieving the sunny attitude of this rudbeckia!
My apologies if anyone was worried by the gloomy nature of that last post and my thanks to all who expressed understanding and support. We are doing some serious cogitating on reworking the front gardens to make them more manageable and hope to begin implementation of a plan soon!
