Reviving Neglected Gardens

...



Robb and I spent an agreeable afternoon, in the back garden of our new home.

More accurately, I hacked at all the overgrown tangles, and Robb hooked what he could in the crook of his cane, and dragged the detritus to our gigantic compost pile.

We have a lot of work to do.

And I couldn't be happier.

Was I dead asleep on the couch, back at our apartment, at 8:30 this evening. Will my neck and shoulders be sore tomorrow? Will it all be worth it?

Do you have to ask?

Get a Japanese hand saw to trim trees and brush with- Its a lightweight pull saw, and it is by far the best thing out there to trim stuff with. You dont need to be super strong to get results. You can get it at Lowes.

Edward Gorey is awesome! This reminds me a little bit of "The Secret Garden," though...

Oh, you should let everything grow over and film Grey Gardens II. I just ordered you a little house warming present that will come to the scenic shop. It should arrive before the 31st. Let me know when it comes.

The pains that result from a hard day's labor in your own garden are among life's best! Enjoy!

I've seen a fair number of fantastic impressions of his style lately. This guy... you would think he had eaten Mr. Gorey for breakfast, his style is so reminiscent:
