Re: How Important is Attractiveness to Your Garden, on a scale of one to ten

I would be happy as an 8 but, sadly, I think I'm only a 3. (well, my garden is a 3!) My husband thought it would be a good place to put 3 dirt piles, a concrete pile, burn pile, wood pile, and weed pile. If I could get rid of all his Piles I would have so much more room for gardening. And it could be that 8 I would like it to be.

Oh my goodness, I know your husband's piles are not a laughing matter but I can't help myself.

Anyway, in all seriousness, I do know the frustration of trying to keep a nice yard or house when you don't get the co-operation you need from other members of the household. You know what they say....It is hard to soar like an eagle when you live with a bunch of turkeys.

Still laughing,

I think that's a "10"

Post  bettyd_z7_va on 10/20/2010, 2:26 pm

Yep! That garden is a 10 to me.

Just send me a bucketful and that "10" Sweetie sitting beside it and I will be happy!

I have to share a quick 'Australia related' happy ending with you.

In the 80s an Australian fellow came to Virginia to be the plant manager at the brick company where my DH worked.

They got on like a house on fire. When he went home he gave DH his address so they could stay in touch.

DH promptly lost his address.

Fast forward all of these years.

Last week, after hearing again how much he wished he could locate his friend, my daughter posted a message on facebook to try to locate him. The only thing we had was his name and that he was from somewhere in Australia.

Yesterday he responded to her post! DH is soooo excited!

Small world, isn't it? I LOVE happy endings!

Betty
