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?

Jules said...

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. :(

Cheryl D. said...

It still looks beautiful in that wild, weedy way!

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


G said...

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

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.
