HITTING PAUSE

It happens every year

About this time.

After months of puttering

In my garden

I know exactly the things

I want to change.

Things I want to dig up

And move around

Or give away.

I have a running list

In my head

And another on paper.

I have a list of people

Who want certain plants

And another list of those wonderful souls

Who will take anything.

I’m excited to dig in.

Except…

It is still August.

Much like mid March.

You can do a lot of damage

This time of year.

So I’ve hit pause.

I’ve cleaned the garden house.

Ordered bulbs

And more bulbs.

Deadheaded

And, of course, there are weeds.

Sometimes it’s best just to stop

Perhaps sit

And wait

For the right moment in time

To come to you.

    Just what i needed to be reminded of, except the cosmos and bachelor buttons are still getting planted for this fall. And, there are still hopes of planting lettuce and then……. It is really hard to stop and wait! Thanks
