England and Gardens
Every spring the woman redesigns her garden. And by redesigns, I mean... she rearranges her patio pots and plants flowers in them. Today was the first day of spring garden design and repotting at our house. She brought home a bunch of plants that she surmised slugs won't eat (that's how she decided upon the flowers this year) and she began planting them in the various pots scattered around the patio.
Pumpy and I went out to help her. (She's a terrible gardener.) She lets weeds and moss grow in between the patio stones and so Pumpy and I happily ate them for her. This did not have a good result. It never does but somehow Pumpy and I cannot resist eating grass and weeds and other plants.
I'm glad it's spring so I can wander out into the back garden and lay down in sun spots.
