Without Hard Work

Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.

Why is it always easier to help other people? I have a mountain of work to do in my own garden yet there is little motivation to do it. In fact it looks like someone has emptied the interior of your great grandmother’s house in my vegetable patch. It is covered in Lino, all shapes and sizes of carpet and even curtains all in the name of weed control…anyway I digress, that is for a whole other blog post!

Today I brought cake pastries and lunch to my parent’s and ended up volunteering to help my mother with some gardening.

I had somewhat made an effort with my appearance today (for some unknown reason!) and was left covered in mud. At least I was a well dressed mud monster!


After moving umpteenth amounts of wheelbarrows of stuff, digging up rhubarb and raspberry canes (which I pinched for my garden!)…


We were graced with intense sunshine and April showers. Followed by a glorious double rainbow! It made the 10th wheelbarrow trip a lot more bearable.


Aside from my mother for company, I found this little guy. And today, I found out that a group of ladybirds is called a loveliness. I’m not sure how true that is but it’s too sweet to not believe!

  1. I have a reluctance to start my garden this year, too. Perhaps I should dress up and get muddy in my ‘going to town’ clothes.
