FIVE REASONS WHY I LIKE TO DO MY YARD WORK WHILE WORKING IN THE SHADE.
- Because I’m old. No need to explain, if you’re old, you understand, if not you wouldn’t understand anyway.
- The sun is very hot and burns your skin. Not a pretty sight, red and peeling skin. Yuk.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
