Sorry, garden, but you’ve been benched for the season.
Circumstances beyond my control
are making this decision final;
you played hard,
responded well to my input,
and never dropped the ball once,
but I’m afraid that this managerial dispute
is making it impossible to continue the game as we know it.
Can I give you a call
in about 6 months?
I just told mine, “Nighty night.” We talked about plans for next year. And I thanked her for her bounty. Each year I think we serve each other better. Hubby is making her a lovely quilt for winter. 🙂
Lovely! (So I’m not the only one who talks to her garden? ) 🙂
I love you talking to your garden . ..and how well she has responded to you over the previous season. 🙂 She is definitely back in the game . ..as soon as that’s possible!
I like the thought of her resting so much more than the thought of her dead… 🙂
Mine is definitely responding as I read this today! I’m sure she, too, is looking forward to resting. I am!
Rest is something we need to give ourselves permission to do more often! Rest away!
