the other day, while waiting for our pre-schoolers to get out, some other moms were talking about their hostas, and daffodils, and pansies, and other plants starting to burst through the dirt. it made me kinda sad.
you see, we have grass. errr, maybe green sod is more accurate? since you can see the striping of where the rolls were placed. now don't get me wrong, i love our new yard. but it's naked. no peony bush to check for buds. no hydrangea to see if any green shoots have popped out. no spring rhubarb to make some deliciousness with. nothing. we got a deck and some grass. no trees to watch green up. no tilled garden spot to plan the rows of.
