rob: You've inspired me to take a closer look at my own weed garden, and possibly even post some photies.
ion: Rob - I would love to see your weed garden, and will try to snap mine for the record before the gardeners destroy it with RoundUp.
I'll show you mine if you show me yours. The back garden is horrible, weedy, scruffy and parched. A bit like myself. Fortunately the blinds in the back room block the view, but I noticed there's a gap along the top where the neighbours' trees look almost nice.
The weeds were so extensive that I was considering spraying with herbicide. But then I decided to get down on hands and knees instead. Much healthier for the garden and for me. Crawling around on one's knees helps develop humility. Not that I lack humility, though one says it oneself.
Working on all fours also helps ease the dodgy back.
In an hour and a half, I was able to rip out a majority of the weeds. And with the ipod on, and the buds inserted, I was able to catch up on some jazz podcasts. It's going to be a good day.
Don't forget to submit your entry to the name that leaf competition. There's a mystery prize.
