Re: gardening question


LOL!.. no apology needed.. I am just sorry to hear that the weeds found you.
   
I am at about the breaking point here.... there are no more flowers,
only weeds and skeeters. I can't seem to get my boss to understand that
I need less hours per day. My mother doesn't seem to understand that I
am not super women and can't get everything she wants done. I have a
list a mile long and it keeps getting longer every day. I have to leave
town and the lady (nurse) who was going to watch my mother husband is
now ill.... oh, did I mention the day after I get back my mother is
having knee replacement....

   
  The heart specialist is on hold.  I have no time to get thru the tests they want me to do....
   
Geesh... sorry, it is just all getting to me. I need this trip to get
away from this situation that is here.... hope it happens....

On another note, I owe you an apology Donna. A few years back you were 
bemoaning your weed situation and I recall replying that I have very few 
weeds. This year it's a totally different story. Mainly maple seedlings 
and clover, but a few others thrown in. I have spent days pulling the damn 
stuff, hauling out huge bags of it and I'm still not done.
