You know that old saying . . . your eyes are too big for your stomach????
Well. That holds true for me in my garden. Because . . . my ideas are too big for my ability to dig.
For reasons I may (or may not) choose to ever explain, I don't have the upper body strength for much digging. Oh, I can dig little holes . . . for planting herbs and small flats of flowers and tiny succulents. But when it comes to . . . planting trees. Or setting stepping stones. Or spreading 4 cubic feet of mulch. Or transplanting hostas. Or digging out root balls. Or putting in a whole new patio. Well . . . then I have to call in My Garden Hero.
He says he is Not a Gardener.
But I know he's just kidding himself.
Because anyone who puts that much effort into helping me create a beautiful garden space?
My Garden Hero . . .
and a (Secret) Gardener!
