Wonderful thing happen to those who carry garden nippers in their purse. My hubby and kids think I’m crazy for toting everything but the kitchen sink in my purse but for me it turns out to be a beautiful thing. Just look at the flowers I cut in the roadside ditch. Carrying around that heavy load on my shoulder was well worth it.
The sweet peas are just about over for the season but the black-eyed susan’s and queen ann’s lace are just littering the ditches. I have to confess I can’t quite figure out why I haven’t been in an accident yet, I spend more time sight seeing for wild flowers than I do keeping an eye on the road.
I can tell you what’s growing in every field and ditch within 30 miles of me but can’t remember what I drove to the store for. Clearly you can see what’s important to me. I never pass up an opportunity to cut wildflowers, that is unless hubby is driving. Sometime I yell STOP and he just gives me “THE LOOK”.
Now if it was a tool sale or equipment sale he would be all for stopping. I’m beginning to think he has his priorities all wrong. What do you think???? stopping for flowers or stopping for tools? For me it’s an easy decision.
