This week-end is the unofficial planting week-end where I live. It’s a long week-end with Queen Victoria Day on Monday, the weather is (almost) sure not to dip below freezing again, and the nurseries are all open.
I know the world was supposed to end last night according to Harold Camping, but I decided to go ahead and plant yesterday anyway.
I have to tell you though that none of my neighbours did any planting yesterday. Do you think they were hoping to avoid the work of gardening in the event they wouldn’t be here to enjoy it? Slackers…or believers? You tell me.
I dug dirt, weeded weeds, bought flowers and 2 beautiful Rose of Sharon trees (if you don’t have one, you should), and planted everything yesterday and today. While everyone else is catching up over the next week or two, I will just be watering and enjoying the stunning blossoms.
