Forgotten Coffee

Report From An Opinionated Gardener – July 22

I went out to the garden yesterday morning intending to take a quick look before leaving for work. The next thing I knew my cup was abandoned and I had a fist full of weeds in my right hand and a bunch of cleome flowers that I’d pinched to make the plants fuller.

Today I took the camera out and as I took photos of the garden I suddenly realized that yesterdays coffee was still on the arbor. I liked it as a decorative element there, not only because of the cup’s color but because it spoke of how life is always a blend. Walks and weeding, coffee and cleome.

    Our gardens sure do suck us in if we allow ourselves to become absorbed in all that we can do to enhance, cut back, and just plain ENJOY. I’ve had a lightbulb moment at the kitchen table and abandoned my breakfast and coffee mid-cup to get out there. Any gardener can relate to your forgotten coffee cup and smile because you allowed yourself to become totally taken in. Love it!
