You’ve Been Benched

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. 🙂

    Mine is definitely responding as I read this today! I’m sure she, too, is looking forward to resting. I am!
