This is the #1 garden dilemma...
how many times in a day do you have to tell a
little boy that light sabers are NOT to be swung at
plants? Especially NOT the pretty ones. WHAT
is wrong with boys that terrorize and destroy
flowers? Seriously. I left him out in the back for 5
minutes. In 5 minutes, there were more rose
buds and stems on the ground than I can count.
I wonder why my Mother's Day roses are taking
SO long to bloom...DUH...
they are ON the freaking ground!
I have two girls and girls are sweet...
"Oh, look a the pretty flowers (caresses),
can I pick one?" "Ummm, sure honey."
But, lo and behold, boy comes along
with blue light saber and chants,
"DIE, DIE, DIE..."
and he MEANS it...
I do not have aphids or snails, I have a 43 pound
pest that does NOT respond to slug and snail
bait, but *TRASHES* my garden happiness.
Here he is...the apple o' my eye!
