Yeah, so, I don’t do yard work.
“I think I’ll do some gardening.” – Something only Bizarro Sonia would say.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, I love a beautiful yard, but I’m a lazy piece of crap who doesn’t want to do the work to make it happen. We rent a house in San Francisco. It’s a great place. We love it. It doesn’t have a front yard, but it does have a nice big front patio and a great deck with a terrific view. See?
I’m cool with doing things to make the front patio and deck nice. It’s got a kick-ass grill and a few chairs, and I’ve got a couple of bird feeders out there. The Spawn and I love to watch the birds. I’d love to get a bird bath and a couple of plants. We don’t spend a lot of time hanging out on the patio or deck, because we live in San Francisco and it’s kinda cold and foggy. We get about 10 warm sunny days a year. We do enjoy that view on a daily basis, and it’s quite lovely at night, too.
Sadly, we spend even less time in the backyard. It’s mainly tanbark and a few planter boxes that someone who is into gardening could do a lot with. When I do go back there, it’s usually to walk Homer around and let him do his business. Lately, I’ve been letting the Spawn walk around back there with us, which really makes me think we should do something with our backyard so he can play back there. For example, one of those big planter boxes might make a nice sandbox. Something for us to think about, I guess.
So anyway, like I said, I’m not a yard work person, so imagine my joy when I saw these beautiful flowers in our backyard.
Orange! My favorite! These fabulous orange flowers are creeping in from the neighbor’s yard and through our fence. It’s so great. We get to enjoy these beautiful flowers, and we didn’t have to do yard work to get them. Win!
