In The Garden

Gardening and I are like a struggling romance.
I love gardens.
I love the colors and the textures.
I love the excitement of the first peek of a seedling.
I love the fresh growth after a steady rain.
I love the health it produces!

I'm not so fond of weeding.
I'm really turned off by ICKY bugs---
especially BIG, green tomato worms
and slimy slugs!
On second thought, the tomato worms are the worst!
Nothing sends me far away from my love like those HUGE, ugly, green aliens!

Yet, the garden grows on.
And after my loyal husband defeats those green monsters,
I return to the romance.
I'm not looking forward to the invasion of those enemies
but for now, I'm enraptured by the beauty
of being in the garden again.
