The -ing of things

Spates of good weather have beckoned me out into the backyard where much needed work is required: weeding, thinning, raking, mulching. All those -ing type of tasks that result in another set of -ings such as lower back spasm-ing.


There was one surprise -ing:

I planted some bulbs last year in my patio container and “whoa!” I exulted upon this sudden blooming. No weeding, mulching, raking required. Just appreciating.

Now, that’s my kind of garden-ing.

  1. And what interesting outfits your columbines have. I’ve not seen those colour ways on our Shropshire versions.

  2. I LOVE it when I plant something and then either forget I planted it or it totally exceeds my expectations. Nature’s gift!

  3. Flowering. πŸ™‚


  5. Gorgeous! Lovely surprise. πŸ™‚
