I think I need to seek out this Grumpy Cat I hear about. This is how I feel about having to go back to work this morning. It’s a case of the Monday’s X10. Well past Mr. Garfield’s whine.
Ah, now I understand. Here is a snippet of Grumpy Cat, if you’ve been under a rock like myself. This sums it up.
I hope I do not have any landscape emergency calls today…
“Good morning, landscape company.”
“Yes, this is Mrs. Bark (real name), your crew just left and they did not stake my gladiolas with the sticks I left for them on the walkway. Actually, they picked them up and threw them away!”
“Did you ask them to do this for you?”
“No, I left the sticks on the walkway for them to do it. Any MORON would have known what I wanted them to do with them.”
“Excuse me, Mrs. Bark, but how were they supposed to know what to do with the sticks? Surely, they thought it was landscape waste.”
“Well, your crew are morons and you sound like one too.” Click.
Actual call, BTW.
Hope I dodge any of these hurled today!!
Click HERE to see what was blooming last year!
Hardy Fuchsia – I’ve never seen this before! This was in one of our clients yard.
Echinacea, Rudbeckia and Chrysanthemums (Oh my!)
Some of my sunflowers are over 14′ feet tall now. The sky was getting weird.
Buddleia Lo & Behold ‘Blue Chip’ – Dwarf Butterfly Bush
I won two of these for correctly identifying them in a local nurseries weekly quiz. These are a new dwarf variety that only gets two feet tall. I had them sitting on the stoop no longer than ten minutes when I got my first customer, a Red-spotted Purple – Limenitis arthemis astyanax.
This gourd is a survivor. It is growing out of the side of our ‘green’ waste bin. This is where the crews put all the grass clippings, dead plants and soil we are paid to remove from clients property. Then we pay to have it recycled. Then, next year, we buy it back as mulch, where we charge the client to put it back into their yards. See how that works? Full circle.
My first Cherokee Purple tomato!
…with feta cheese and balsamic vinegar dressing. Nom, nom!!
