AFTER THE HEAT

IMG_0810After a couple of days of heat, the clouds and the showers came.  It was a welcomed relief for the garden and gardener.  I took the opportunity to do a bit more planting in between raindrops. Two raspberry bushes went into a sunny corner, right in front of the cherry tomatoes.  One will produce red fruits in midsummer and the other gold in autumn.  I don’t imagine they will fruit this year but I can always hope.

I had really neglected my green thumb the last few years.  It was really hard doing shift work and raising Sheba.  Something had to give.  Gardening was one of them.  I used to spend endless happy hours starting seedlings and transplanting in the spring.  And later, I moved things here and there, hauled gravel and created flower beds.

Somewhere, sometime, when I wasn’t paying attention, everything went to pots.  And as a result, my yard became a mess – over run with ground-covers and weeds.  The pots stood empty except for dirt and weeds.  But now, my green thumb has returned.  The flower bed and pots are lovingly filled again.

The ground-covers and weeds are still running wild.  They will be tamed in good time.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
