My mom use to tell me “if wishes were horses, beggers would ride.”
I wish I could explain to you why I was gone for so long.
I have sat down to write this post at least a dozen times over the past month. And I simply could not write what I wanted to write. It has been 12 months since I last posted on this blog. And I have good reasons for that. And I really want to explain those very good reasons, but then I just come across as whiney or a braggart. So, I am not going to explain anything. I am back and let’s just say I have a whole lot of things I wish I could tell you right now and I will tell you eventually, but they will come out over the course of this gardening season.
I wish that March had not been so cold. Last March we were experiencing temps in the 70s and 80s. I could have been at the freaking beach last March. This March, I could have been at a beach too… if it was located in the Tundra… And I was wearing a body length woolen bathing suit… AndÂ was a member of the Polar Bear Club.
I wish there were no such thing as deer. Ok, maybe not that there were no deer (after all, venison chili is tasty and I would not want to deny avid hunters their favorite past time), but I do wish they would cull the herd where I live. Because the deer here are starving (and I mean that in the most real sense of the word – starving as in dying not as in ‘it’s 2am and I am looking for a tasty snack’). They are eating anything they can, including things they did not use to eat and what they don’t eat they trample.
Most of all, I wish that your garden will be wonderful this year.
I have alot of wishes.
If wishes were horses, I’d have enough manure to fertilize my whole garden.
