Due to recent rains, Tuesday night’s church league softball games were cancelled. That gave me a free evening, and I jumped at the chance to spend some time in the garden.
I began the process of weeding and clearing out last year’s beds to get them ready for this year’s plantings. As I did so, I was impressed at how much the weeds have grown in just a few short weeks this spring. It made me think that creating a garden is a sheer act of the will; nature has other plans for the space, and is vigorously at work to return it to its natural state.
In fact, I think there are some weeds that would positively take over the world in very short order if given half a chance (and no, I am not talking about “The Day of the Triffids”. Anybody else ever see that movie?)
