A recent session with my garden therapist. Dr. Hortfreud.
Hi Dr. Hortfreud.
It’s been quite a while since our last session, Carol. Looking at my notes it was almost exactly two years ago. At the time, you were concerned because you had purchased expensive pants just for gardening.
Oh, those pants? Well, yes, I did buy some expensive pants for gardening. But I still have them and still wear them for gardening so I guess they were a good investment after all.
Surely you didn’t call me back to discuss pants, did you?
No, I just wanted to talk and since the entire world is on self-isolation, I thought you and I could chat about gardening.
Okay, what do you want to talk about?
I sowed some seeds yesterday.
Yes, I saw all your videos about sorting your seeds and labels. It became pretty evident after eight sessions that over-buying pants isn’t your real problem.
Whew, that’s good.
It’s seeds, Carol
And, then am I hearing correctly from your recent press conference that you ordered more seeds?
Well, I didn’t have some zinnias and basil that I needed.
Let’s move on, shall we? Tell me what else you are thinking about?
I’m thinking about how wonderful it is to have a garden right now!
It surely is, Carol. It surely is. Now I think that’s enough for this session. I sense you’d like me to stay close at hand for a while.
Yes, Dr. Hortfreud. I would. I promise not to let another two years go by before we have another session!
I guess my vacation is over. Okay, I’ll be here for you, Carol. Rain or shine!
Thank you, Dr. Hortfreud!
