I have a confession to make 

My garden is full of weeds. There are so many weeds that it's becoming difficult to see the plants particularly in the foliage garden. So what's my excuse? Virus!

Almost 3 weeks ago my husband starting sneezing and came down with a horrific cold. Just as he was feeling better I started. Rather than bouncing back like he did, I got worse to the point where I decided it was an infection and required antibiotics. Well, that wasn't the case. Apparently there is a virus going around right now sneaking its way into people's sinus passages and lying in wait like a snake ready to strike. My doctor clucked in sympathy, all the while telling me that she could only treat the symptoms and time would do the rest.

I don't know about you, but it bugs the heck out of me to sit around doing nothing. Even at my worst, I still itch to get outside and water or mow. So imagine how difficult it has been for me to sit inside and watch the weeds take over. The good news is that I am feeling better but, being on the verge of bronchitis earlier this week, I'm not too eager to push my luck and run outside. So while I sit here and feel sorry for myself I've decided to make a list of all the garden tasks I want to accomplish as soon as I'm 100%. Things like pull the weeds in both front beds, edge all the gardens, put mulch in the front and side gardens, find just the right place for the new concrete bench we bought a month ago that's still sitting in the dang garage, lay down the little patio for the bench, etc. etc. I'm already tired! Happy Gardening.

Hi Blogger,
Your blog is wonderful, although I have a confession to make isn't exactly what I was looking for: gardening gift, but I like the topic and how you wrote it. I am more interested in gardening gift, but during my search for more information I discovered I have a confession to make, certainly one of the finest blogs I have seen lately!
