Working in the shade!

FIVE REASONS WHY I LIKE TO DO MY YARD WORK WHILE WORKING IN THE SHADE.

  1. Because I’m old. No need to explain, if you’re old, you understand, if not you   wouldn’t understand anyway.
  2. The sun is very hot and burns your skin. Not a pretty sight, red and peeling skin. Yuk.
  3.  When you work in the sun you get all wet and the sweat runs down to your undies. If you work in the shade the sweat only drizzles down slowly.
  4. When you work in the sun, your freckles pop out. When your freckles pop out you get mad and pull the flowers instead of the weeds. You know they are flowers because they are easy to pull. Weeds are much harder.
  5. Flowers are easier to transplant if it’s shady. Give them a break. They don’t wither and die as easily. In the end you will have a more beautiful garden.

Happy Gardening!

    Betty,

    A this past Saturday it was in the 40’s. Yesterday it hit 88. How crazy! Then again, I live in Ohio, and the state (and maybe myself….a little!) is crazy when it comes to temperature changes. I thought about push mowing when I got home from work, but instead I turned the AC on in the house and played the dog INSIDE. Just too hot too soon. You’ll only find me in the shade too until I get a little used to the hot weather.
