Gardening Is Not For The Faint Of Heart!

Do you remember your mom telling you "If you want to look beautiful it has to hurt?" ( Usually said on a Saturday night while hauling a brush through the tangles in your wet hair as she puts rollers in your hair for Sunday. Which, by the way, you had to sleep on all night!)

It seems that goes for a beautiful garden as well. . .


This is what happens when you turn your back on the wheelbarrow you just loaded with rocks for the pond. . .

For crying out loud!

The garden's worth it though. . .

Your gardens are gorgeous! The bruises come with the territory. I fared pretty well on my rock project earlier in the week. Although I didn't fare completely bruise free. My arm took a hit when a bucket of rocks slipped on me. Totally worth it!

Your garden must be the envy of the neighbourhood. It's simply stunning.

Not being a gardener (apartment) I'm unsure -- are they making vengeful wheelbarrows with motors now?
