Gardeners really are the most optimistic people. Every Spring, seed is planted with the hope that the harvest will be beautiful, pest-free, and abundant. Though that is not always the case, our memories are short, and we give it a go again the next Spring.
Someone else's misfortune became my gain this week. My next door neighbor rented out his townhouse when he got married. I'll spare you the horror story of how badly the inside of the place was damaged (they were quiet though, and never bothered me) and in the end he had to have them evicted. They left all their stuff inside, despite his many attempts to accommodate them to come and get it. He let me buy - for only a couple of dollars - 2 wrought-iron chairs for my deck. That will give me a nice place to sit and enjoy all my greenery as it grows this summer!
