Sprucing Up

Sad little plants, begging for help,

neglected all season long.

Finally, a crisp day came upon us,

and inspiration, or the threat of company, hit.

Time to clean up these little pots.

Some are a lost cause, so out with the old,

in with the new… herbs and tomato plants.

The rosemary looks sad, but still has life,

so a little snip here, some fresh soil there,

and then, voila! A happy little plant.

Dirt flew everywhere, even in my hair,

thanks to the wind blowing across the lake.

Now I’m not ashamed of our little planter garden…

Off to the next pre-Thanksgiving task…Cookies!
