My Two Favorite Gardeners

A wet and unseasonably hot spring has turned our yard
into a jungle! Shrubs doubled in size in one month!
I'm sure our neighbors were glad to see some trimming
and removal of some past-their-prime bushes.
Me? I'd rather take pics and smile at them from
the window, enjoying the air conditioning. :)
And wouldn't you know they both got poison ivy
out there!? Taylor, being so sensitive to it, went
to the doctor today for a shot and prescription.
A few more weekends and the yard should be
looking pretty good. Now if I could just get them
to run the tiller in the garden as it's getting very
late for putting one in at all! LOL!

  7. Well how nice that you have your Mister and Taylor to get your yard in order. Quite a sacrifice to get poison ivy.... I hope you didn't plant that!!! Does it just grow wild in peoples yards. I thought that was for the mountains, or forests.

    I'm with you, I much rather watch with my camera!!

  12. Wanda ~ poison ivy grows everywhere here just like any weed! You learn at a young age how to identify it. ...or at least you're suppose to! ha. In this case, they saw it and removed it carefully, but still must have brushed against some.

  13. We've had our own jungle thinning going on too... as well as the poison ivy!

    When you get your garden in give us a tour -- I've always wanted to see your garden.

  14. It looks so lush and green! The poison ivy scares me though. I've never had it but my dad had terrible, terrible reactions to it as a kid. He loves to tell how he got it from a friend's duck once and that they took him in the back door to the drs. office so he wouldn't scare the other kids with his face being so messed up!

    I'm glad you enjoyed my post. Really, sometimes you have to laugh or you'll cry!

  15. Seems we went from a cool spring to hot weather overnight, doesn't it? Nice that your guys are out there getting things under control. Wish I could borrow them for my yard:)

  24. Hi Betsy,

    I am catching up. You are one busy gal. Love that pic of nugget.
    Poison ivy- Bless their hearts. That is NO FUN at all.
    Your drawing of the chick was right on. You have some serious talent girl.

    Big hugs,
    Barb

    P.S. hope the itching is not too bad.

  26. Betsy,
    I'm in the same position. No garden yet. First the weather played a big factor and secondly time.

    I remember Taylor got posion ivy since him and I are both of us are highly allergic to the ivy.

    Good luck-

  27. Cindy ~ oh, I remember your face last year! Thankfully his is all waist down....he's still miserable, though.

  29. 2 of my boys did the same for me last Sunday Betsy, but in the cold rain of a freezing Winter's day. I now have a huge, bare garden bed ready to go, I'm rapt, bless them! Your 2 gardeners are going a mighty fine job, under your expert 'supervision'!
