Eat Your Hearts Out, Fellow Gardeners

Having spent the last month working our butts off in the yard, Linda and I were pleased when we could finally stand back and look at our handiwork. The following pictures will give you a sense of our accomplishment. Eat your hearts out, fellow gardeners.

      Tired but not exhausted. Working on a replica of the Mall to get you DC types up to the land of Vermont where men are men and women are women and Barney Frank can get married and you look fine in buttons and bows.

      But you didn’t see the fantastic gardens behind the house on your way to the dump. Ah, the dump, where the elite meet to tweet and recycle our little hearts out.

    Incredible! I once planted a pickle. Nothing happened, but it did create anticipation and anxiety.

      Anticipation and anxiety I can imagine. It’s obvious, says Mr. Greenthumbs, that you planted the damn pickle upside down. Get a gardening life.

      Every morning she whispers in my ear “you’re Napoleon, you’re Napoleon.” Of course, I have grandeur.

      In the grand scheme of things, what is “real” and what is not? You can call me Grandeur. It has a ring of “reality” to it.

    As in Napoleon Dynamite? “Pedro Rules” – and, um us DC types want to see the real garden Richard. After all we are mired in false fronts everywhere we turn around here…:-)

      Or Napoleon Brandy perhaps. Here we go with “real” gardens again. You wouldn’t be mired in false fronts if you would just believe.

          You’re getting the hang of it. You sound a little like Tinker Bell or is it Dorothy? No Natalie Wood in “Miracle on 34th Street.”
