Report From PIA – November 22
Gardeners soon learn that adding a bench or some chairs to a landscape instantly makes it appealing. The solidity of these furnishings contrast well with all of the plants, certainly, but I think there’s a greater reason we respond to them. These benches and chairs invite us to rest.
I’ve been forced to rest the past few days because of a nasty virus. Even though I’ve felt crummy, however, I’ve not taken to doing nothing easily. There are perennials to cut down, and some winter decorating to do. I have an article to write and a book proposal to completely revamp.
Never mind, my body says, lay down and stop trying to be industrious… resting is productive in it’s own way.
True. I should listen to my lawn furniture more often.
