It's A Jungle Out There


I'm just about to go out and wangle me some weeds.

The garden isn't as scary as it usually is when I return from a trip.

Superman, or Supertent as it's been suggested I call him, kept the pots and vegetables watered, mowed and edged the same day I returned home and rearranged the scary hoarder mess I call the attic. The cats were fat and sassy and the house looked like the housekeeper had just been here.

Oh, and he picked me up at the train station. Sample text: I'm in front of the station, look for the kayak??? Thankfully the kayak was on the roof of the car......

He is very nice to come home to.

But the bindweed is up to me. And the eternal morning glories are fighting for space with the bind weed.

If I can salvage a bloom or two I'm proposing Flowers In The House next Monday.

It's my last day of vacation and I can't think of a better way to wrap up these two week.

You in?


Or maybe you'd prefer to come out and lend me a hand?

Plenty of weeds to go around.

  1. How wonderful to come home to everything being in order. I'd say that's a great way to end a vacation.

  4. Welcome back, Jane! Loved the previous entry about the Cape & Vineyard and photos, too. i will be in Mass in two weeks for a big family wedding/reunion but sadly, not on the water side. Hoping for some great Autumn foliage, for sure. Super-Roomie sounds awesome but Im not sure Id want anyone re-arranging my attic. That is such a guy thing! But picking you up at the Station (Union Station in
    DC?) -- now that is worth an Official Commendation!
    We missed you.

    1. I know, I couldn't have dragged my luggage one more foot.

      And we had discussed the attic, I just couldn't believe he did it.

      It was a landslide of stuff. Should have taken a picture.

    2. Oh, OK...in that case, terrific! Maybe you should ask him to do your FITH Monday-- that would br a real Superman test. My coreopsis are on 3rd bloom cycle now; what a gift. Too hot & dry here, though. Record-setting heat, mid to high 90

  5. Do you think Superman might arrange the flowers for FITH? We look like to see his efforts.

    1. Is there anything he can't do? (besides weeding, that is...)

    2. Mise, what a great idea. If he's not waterskiing, or kayaking or fishing on Sunday I'll ask him. Probably do it better than me.

    3. Mise,
      Brilliant idea! Can't wait.

  6. Maybe, if I have any flowers left after the trampling roofers and carpenters. Now back to Superman...did you say rearranged the attic? This person clearly does not exhist, you have made him up just to drive us all crazy and have a good laugh. Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

  7. New reader here. I am loving your blog and reading about your flowers and life. Almost makes me want to cut all of the trees in my yard so I have full sun and beautiful flowers like you. But I probably shouldn't, right?

  8. FITH? Hmm...I think I can run with Old Faithful. Maybe a grevillea or two.More than that and I'll need to hit the supermarket...
    Oh, welcome back!

  9. Jane.. Glad you arrived to find a well kept home by S-man and sassy kitties... Trust they were appropriately glad to see you with just a bit of kitty snub to keep you on your toes. Hoping to find a sprig or two worthy of FITH. Happy weeding and welcome back...Susan

  11. Am starting to worry about who will follow Superman. The Colonel was a good roomie, and she found Superman. Who in the universe will he find?

    Know you will feel good once the bindweed is gone and your fingers are little dirty. FITH of course. xoxo

  12. Your lodger is close to sainthood....

    FITH may elude me this time; nothing much to pick out there. I can show you weeds, thyme just going over, and sweet peas setting seed though. Oh, and overgrown beans. Lots of beans. But I'll see.
