Warning: Blogging can cause excessive weed-aches. (aka The Great American Weed Sale; which has nothing to do with the previous post.)

Before I started blogging my garden looked like this:









And now, it looks like this.

Look at it this way. Had you not been an experienced blogger you wouldn't have had the good common sense to take pictures of your lovely garden in the first place so that when it went to pot (no pun intended) later in your blogging life you'd have proof you actually had a garden that bloomed once upon a time and get to spend more time reading run-on sentences in your comment section from other bloggers with weeds and no grammatical skills whatsoever. Put that red pen down.

See how life works out?

This is too funny and I DO understand. I tried to dig an escape hatch to China but the weeds said, "no way, we don't need no stinkin' rice."

Check my post out called "Tranquil Gardening..."

it is just returning to its natural state...good for the environment...gotta look at the positives...

I don't know whether to cry or to celebrate. Whenever I think of gardens I admire, I think about yours, (from when you were a lesser known blogger ;)
These pics bring you down to the level and my little patches of color a little more accomplished.
The question is, what's my excuse?!

Steven Anthony said...

so you believe in a naturel looking garden, lol....right?

Langdowns said...

Oh my goodness. I can feel your frustration from Down Under! Yes. Umm, well, best of luck with that. My thoughts are with you as I look on from afar (with glass of champagne in my hand).

Life is too short to weed!

Dawn said...

I am having just the opposite problem... My neighbors keep giving me plants and out of guilt I have been trying to keep them weed free...hence edging into my blogging time. :(

It still looks beautiful in that wild, weedy way!

外遇---偷來的時間、偷來的伴侶、偷來的愛情
或許新鮮刺激,或許瘋狂美好,但這一切,終究是偷來的…
外遇傷害了一個幸福的家庭
或許你會說:問題其實早已存在,外遇並不是傷害的唯一因素
但是內心深處其實你知道,這只是外遇的藉口!
建築在傷害別人之下所得到的愛情,終究難以幸福…

顫抖著手,我拿不穩那份薄薄的離婚協議書
早知道他的出軌,癡心的守候最後他終究還是想要離婚
朋友勸我抓姦,但是我擔心他一氣之下會決裂的提出離婚要求
我愛他,願意作出一切只為挽回
所以我等、我默不吭聲、我在他面前強顏歡笑
多少夜裡,他用敷衍的藉口不歸
而我假裝相信,卻淚濕了枕頭...
顫抖著手,我拿不穩那份薄薄的離婚協議書
啞著聲音,我告訴他我絕對不會離婚去成全他們
只是,我不知道不離婚,懲罰的是他們,還是我自己...

LOL! Blogging is addicting. Time consuming. But fun!
I like your natural garden... :)
Have a great week ahead!

Amazing what falls by the wayside when blogging becomes the be all to end all.

Gigi said...

Oh I can relate. But blogging is far more fun than weeding....so blogging usually wins.

Michele said...

Blogging is so addicting.

Cheryl said...

Um, I prefer to think of my gardens as English-style, not weedy. I keep telling the perennials that are choking to death that those 8' tall things attract better butterflies so they're staying.

If it weren't for the humidity, I'd be out there right now too. The semi colon made my heart flutter.

Weeds are plants too. If you blog only when it's dark you won't have an excuse for a weedy garden.

Lorraine said...

Yep, between blogging and a couple of unexpected surgeries during the last gardening season my garden was totally taken over by a transplant from a friend that sent out runners everywhere. I had to get control this spring because this getting old stuff stinks. Bending and weeding may be good exercise, but not for a deteriorating back. Good luck reigning it in!

TC said...

I like to weed the flowerbeds with the weedeater, doesn't kill em but slows em down. LOL

就像許多外遇故事一樣
男人有了外遇想要離婚,但是女人死不放手
所以他藉故發揮、所以她不甘示弱
他總是說這樣不可理喻的女人俗不可耐才讓他想要離婚
她總是說這樣背棄婚姻的男人她絕對不會離婚讓他們好過

記憶中我從沒有過快樂的童年、幸福的家庭
父親在家的時候總是爭執不斷
父親離家的時候母親總是數落不斷

我總是想,為什麼不離婚
這樣的婚姻意義何在?

母親認為離婚就是輸了
但是她不知道,自己身陷在漩渦中無法掙脫...

知道他有了外遇
面對他的低聲下氣妳冷嘲熱諷、無理取鬧
妳瘋狂似的大吵大鬧
甚至到他的公司去亂、向他的親友抱怨、向鄰居們哭訴…
妳把他的外遇鬧的人盡皆知
最後,妳把他的愧疚消耗殆盡…
最後,妳把他想要回頭的念頭打消…
最後,妳自己把他推向外遇的第三者身邊…

THAT is precisely the reason I do not have a garden.

Time required, aching back, and guilt, shame, and frustration every time I looked at it.

Luckily for me, I visit my Mom three times a week and she has a fantastic flower garden.

Donna said...

Your garden still looks way better than mine! Pot might be an easy growing option.

As Cape Cod Turns said...

I could probably put up a picture of my butt before and after blogging for 2+ years, but it's not so pretty.....

TheNextMartha said...

Wait, are you kidding me? There is a disease that happens when you start blogging and it causes those weeds to grow? This is a lightbulb moment for me. For WEEKS I have been wondering why the hell there were weeds in my garden. It's blogs. Blogaddictitis.

Scope said...

Solve it like my mom did with her soap operas. You bothered her, and you had to go pull a bucket of weeds or some other outdoor task.
