Gardening in PJS or "excuse me , but there's a Black Widow spider in my Cilantro"
***BLACK WIDOW ALERT** click on photo for a better view
FUZZY BUT THE CLASSIC RED HOUR GLASS MARKINGS ARE THERE
So, I went to the ladies garden party last night and it was lovely. This yard is like something out of a fairy tale or from my imagination of an English glade. I was looking for fairys and little magical beings under hydrangeas and moss. I have photos but haven't uploaded yet. May share later. Just loverly.
But for me and my hard Georgia clay yard, gardening is hit or miss. I'm more of a 'pot on a patio' gardener. Let's see , I've killed 2 pots worth already. I just can't seem to stay on top of the watering dept.
Herb gardening is the focus right now mainly. I like to pull little bits to add to recipes. Basil, oregano, cilantro..just never got around to getting dill or mint. Cilantro got burned by the sun and is gone gone, but here she was in her shining glory with a little visitor. I don't like Black widows and this one led a good life before it's demise.
My front yard HAD a lovely purple butterfly bush, and the water department just bull dozed her down to put in some new pipes or something. ERGH! I asked them to go dig up another area that has posion oak in it for me since my butterfly bush (with birds nest) is gone. He just laughed at me. I was only 1/2 cup of coffee down at the time. Now it makes no sense.
I'm a Geek for many things: Food, Pajamas, Coffee, Chocolate, Movies, Books, getting and being fit and healthy, 80's music, and the list goes on and on .....A nurse, a diabetic, I've lost over 130 lbs and have more to go . And I actually enjoy working out.
I chose the names of Ms. PJ Geek and PJ and Pounds because I have happy memories of childhood, coming in dirty and sweaty from playing in the yard. Then taking a bath, putting on a fresh nightgown and feeling all new again . I felt like a princess. Fresh renewal. .........
All names and situations will be changed to protect the innocent and the guilty, and so I can keep my job. While I am a nurse, I do not intend this to be a blog with specific directions or guidelines for healthcare. And.....though I have a college degree, that was a long time ago ya'll, and I don't remember proper punctuation or grammar.
