I’m fairly certain my neighbors must think I’m crazy, especially this time of year. The other day I was in the front yard planting crocuses and miniature daffodils in the lawn. I decided that I wanted to make a river of blooms down through the middle of the lawn, with a few smaller patches radiating out to the side.
In order to avoid forgetting where I planted the bulbs and accidentally dig them up while planting more, I dug all the holes at once. It looked like I had lost my mind. My neighbor actually came over to see what I was doing, she said she was wondering if I was getting rid of more lawn.
I was thinking that in these situations I should come up with some crazy story to tell people when they ask (my neighbor wasn’t the only person to stop). I should have said I was trying to catch a gopher. Hopefully, when they drive by next spring they’ll remember this day and realize what I was doing.
Do ever think things your neighbors do are crazy? What about you, do you do things your neighbors might wonder about?Filed under Miscellaneous | Comments (21)
