Things are starting to get back into shape on my personal slice of heaven.
My trim little semi circle of yellow Knock Out Roses has been wildly successful so of course that means Sami wants to teach them a lesson with his chain saw. This is what he hates about exuberant abundance:
And that of course is exactly what I love about it. He sees it as untamed nature encroaching on human territory and I see it as a sign of my gardening mastery – plants so successful they cannot be held back. RAWR!
I offer these pictures as documentation of how lovely they once were just in case they should go missing by reason of “I thought they were weeds.”
He may have a point about exuberant abundance encroaching on the sidewalk.
