A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for
learning how to grow in rows ~Doug Larson
Sure is a lot of truth to this. With this heat it seems the only that is
growing really well are the weeds! And boy are they tenacious! Seems they have
dug their roots into the soil and are hanging on for dear life. I love going out
into my gardens and to be honest I even like pulling the weeds unlike most
folks. To me it is my therapy.
I do some of my best thinking while pulling weeds. ~
If I am mad at the world I can just go pull a few weeds and the mad melts
away with the work. When I need a few moments to myself, I learned a long time
ago that escape route was in the garden. The kids really didn't want to find me
as I might just have a job for them to do! I love to see the weeds removed and
the beauty of the flowers shining forth. And I definitely do a lot of thinking
while pulling weeds: planning, organizing and of course a bit of dreaming!
Happy 4th of July! Enjoy your holiday time!
