Happy Wednesday Deskers, the mess continues and some random thoughts about the garden tour. links to the garden photo posts will follow.
If you'd like to play along with us, shoot a shot of what you are up to
all the lids are off the H2O's that were used for the anniversary water colored card because, I read somewhere you have to do that so they dry out and don't grow mold. so, after this was shot they did get capped and put away again.
also edited last weeks WOYWW with some garden shots then too if you stopped by when only the desk was showing.
The tour went OK
I think we are mostly favorable about the idea of allowing our house to be on the tour again in the future. Most of the people were very friendly and just excited to be here. there were a few people who you know have that holier than thou vibe going on who will point blank tell you what you are doing wrong and what you "should" be doing and a few people who have never played in the dirt before in their lives ( how does anyone escape that? my mind says didn't their mama's push them out the door with a snarled Go OUTSIDE and Play, and stay there till your father gets home thing??) anyways, I actually found it easier to be amused by the you are doing it all wrong people than I ever have in my life. maybe, its an aging thing? There were also enough people who pulled me aside and told me we had the nicest garden they had seen ( and they went to them all) so, those people totally made my day :) and that is what I remember best.
( We almost did not agree to participate in this tour because, it was a fund raiser for a "sustainable community" project and all the other gardens are "Organic", and seriously we do spray for bugs in the lawn and so, it could be the people who were snarky were expecting to see another weed bed which is what some of the gardens are as some people let their weeds "shade" their lettuce and they have to "hunt" for their veggies in the jungle.)
