swampy and i were out the garden earlier half lifting the huge concrete slab that goes over a storm drain~we may have to have our back yard dug up to have the drains looked at~eek.
while in the garden we were discussing planting and making a small seating area in the nook beside our porch.
as usual swampy was talking of weeding and horrors of horrors wondering how to make my little hawthorn grow straighter~more ordered. it pained me to have to even discuss that it was growing as nature intended and that under no circumstance he was to touch it!
the conversation ended with me saying that if we ever have our small holding then he would have to have his own garden~for some reason he loves an ordered garden with straight, sharp edges and no 'weeds'.
i on the other hand look at everything for its edible/healing gifts and natural beauty~which is as it should be
