Here Comes Sunshine

Here Comes Sunshine.


Here Comes Sunshine

Every gardener should have Sunshine helping them in their garden. Nothing would get done without Sunshine. It’s been months now since I’ve seen Sunshine. Sunshine  will be helping me in my garden tomorrow and Saturday; I’m not talking about that big, round, fiery ball of light we rarely see in the Pacific Northwest.

Sunshine is a young man who has the work ethic of someone who grew up in the 50’s. He’s not afraid of hard work. He’s not afraid of a challenge. He restores my hope in today’s youth. Some of them do know how to work hard.  In spite of being young, he knows his way around the garden and he’s not afraid of it.

Now to make his list. I always have a list. Just ask anyone who has ever helped me in my yard.  Buahahahaha! When he arrives (and he’s always on time), we go through the list. I give him time to ask questions and once answered, off he goes. The first task is usually to locate the proper tools for the job. They could be anywhere really. It’s a good thing he’s not afraid to go on this adventure of searching where they were left last. We try really hard to put things away, but truth be told, my husband struggles with this. Shhhh. Don’t tell him I said that. 🙂

It’s a good thing we only have 1/3 acre! Sunshine’s list is finished. Now it’s time to make mine. At the top my list will be to locate those pruners that I saw my husband using last weekend. Wish me luck!
