welcome to my blog indeed !!
Well, I think instead of explaining every darn thing, I am just going to start in the middle. Today I took the plants out of the boot of the car. It was an indian summer day- one of those days in Autumn thats nicer and warmer than most of the summer in Ireland. The plants should not have been in the boot of the car since yesterday of course- but I am a single parent and I dont always get everything I plan done when I want to do it, but eventually, (and this is the miracle) most of it does get done.
I was thinking about my ex boyfriend when I was planting. During the short time we dated, he was trying to redo his garden and had dropped hints about me helping him. He must have been so anxious to dump me that he forgot that he needed my expertise in the garden. And naturally, the hints he dropped afterward about my helping didn't get him anywhere.
But here's what I was thinking- his garden was very plain, and controlled and he kept saying that he wanted it to look like mine (the opposite- a bit uncontrolled where every plant expresses its personality quite freely). And I was thinking that gardens are like people, I think this guy found it hard to think about a slightly uncontrolled, spontaneous person like me in his life, just like he was not able to give his garden what he wanted himself, but yet he found it hard to let someone else help him with that either.
And thats what I thought today.
