|Iris reticulata ‘Lady Beatrix Stanley’|
I have three wishes for this Thursday.
I wish that it would stop raining long enough for the raised beds in the vegetable garden to dry out so that I can rip out all the wood that is framing those beds, pull up the landscape fabric in the paths, till up the whole thing, lay out new raised beds, edge them with some kind of stone, and have it all done so I can still plants peas on March 17th.
I wish… well, really, I only have the one wish right now. Everything else is moving along as it should this spring. I don’t want to get all garden-greedy.
Thanks to Cindy at My Corner of Katy for coming up with the idea of Three for Thursday.
(Note from the garden fairies… If Carol is only going to use up one of her three wishes, then we want dibs on a wish, too. We also wish it would stop raining, but not because we are anxious for Carol to re-do the vegetable garden raised beds.&n In fact, we are a little fearful of that because if everyone will remember, when she started tearing in to the rest of the garden with that garden designer, we all fled for our very lives back to the vegetable garden. We thought we’d be safe there! Now where are we going to go? What we wish for is that the timing is right and the rain stops long enough so that they can plant some of the new garden beds before she tears up jack in this vegetable garden, as Carol’s grandmother used to day. Then we only have to move once. We garden fairies are really homebodies at heart and we don’t like all this disruption and displacement in the garden!)
(Note from Dr. Hortfreud… It appears that only two wishes have been used here. I’ll take the third wish, if no one else wants it. I wish that Carol finds another place to sow seeds for a few pea vines because if she doesn’t get to plant peas somewhere in her garden on March 17th, I’m going to need some help handling the gardenological impact on her psyche.)
