Odd-Shape Garden

I feel incredibly thankful to be sitting at my computer right now. The weather’s been horrible and the drive home from school was terrifying and nerve-wrecking. The further north I went, the harder it rained. Several times during the drive, I was down to almost zero visibility. I couldn’t even see the lane lines.

Despite all of that, the line of cars behind me were pushing me to go faster because doing 65 mph in the pouring rain was apparently too slow for them. By the time I got off the freeway, my hands were clutching the steering wheel so tight that I couldn’t unclasp it. Anyway, I’m home now, safe and sound.

I’m not going to write much for the today’s prompt. I saw it right before I left this morning and my mind was drawing a blank then and it’s drawing a blank now. So why write it. Besides, the people I know (in real life) will not even have a glimpse of my blog even if I typed the URL on their computers, loaded it up, and shoved it in their faces. So why should I waste my precious time to say anything to them on here?

Instead, I am going to do the photo challenge: Enveloped

I went out I believe it was last week and took these of the garden. After 6 years, I can finally see changes, things are actually growing. The first few years after we moved to this house, this garden was a mess. Mainly because this used to have a swimming pool on top of it. All the chlorine and water had seeped into the soil.

Nothing really grew those years. Even the snow peas turned out tiny and just about everything we buried in the ground died, pumpkin seeds, potatoes, and even plum trees. Now, after 6 years of conditioning the soil, this odd-polygonal-shape plot of land finally look like a garden.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed this mini-tour of the garden. I will have more pictures as the season progresses or if this storm will ever end.

  1. I like you garden pictures, especially the close up of the blackberry bush. What a unique flower. I envy you the snowpeas. They are so high priced by the time they reach OKC, I seldom buy them even though I love them. Eat a double portion for me.

    1. Thank you. It is the first time I’ve seen blackberry bush like that. Usually, at this time of the year, there would be white flowers. I’m not sure what’s going on this year.
      Ha ha, I sure will eat a double portion if there is a double portion this year.


  2. I really appreciate your posts and I hope you know that I look forward to reading what you have to share. I know how it feels when your friends and family don’t want to read anything that you write. It can be discouraging. I write simply for me, and if nobody else reads it, I am okay with that! At least I will have left my mark on the world in some tiny way for people to see and read if they want to after I’m gone. 🙂

  3. I used to care about that, believe me. I used to urge all the people I know to check out my blog. Not anymore. I cannot be happier that none of them care.


  4. Nice garden! I look forward to future pictures. Speaking of driving in a blinding rainstorm (and snow storm), I pull over and wait until the rain (or snow) calms down and I can see to drive. You probably were not given an opportunity to pull over with the cars pushing you from behind.
