Mellow Yellow Monday, No more...


Mellow Yellow Monday, is hosted by Drowsy Monkey, check out the other participants.

It was a sunny, warm day, I had a reminder call from my mother-in-law to prune my roses. She doesn't know that whilst installing our new Air Conditioner in January, in the mist of a snow storm, most of my roses were demolished by my husband and the installers. So, I pruned what they didn't kill, and noticed my Daffodils were no more...they're being moved, for an all new adventure next spring.


I have to add a postscript to this post. I've been married to this man for 31 years, and every spring he does things to my garden and the plant is no more. I don't think it's intentional, anyway, I've now blockaded various areas of the yard. Next it will be crime scene tape. I should also like to tell you that is might be a joke of mother nature, or maybe God was just having an off day. My mother-in-law, the biological mother of my husband can grow anything, anywhere. She cuts off a little snippet of something, anything sticks it in the ground, never buys expensive fertilizers, none of that modern horticultural stuff and it's a jungle out there. So how does one have a son that pulls a beautiful poppy thinking it's a dandelion? God is such a trickster. In the background of my daffodils you can see my already done blooms of crocus' , the bunny had a feast.

I was pretty sad when my little lemon tree got broken in half, but happily it recovered. I hope you will still get some rose blooms. :)

Oh my goodness! I have been known to rip out plants that I thought were weeds and then wondered the next year...hmmm where are those new flowers I planted!! LOL

I can plant starts of my old fashioned rose bushes by just sticking them in the ground , but nothing else. I need a gardener !!! lol
Blessings~

I laughed and laughed over this post...you have such a gift for writing. ((hugs)) Men are so funny--I've been married to my husband for 27 years and there are STILL things he's rather daft about.

Tch tch tch! Here's hoping things grow back!
