Unabashed gloating

The hard labor in the garden is done for the year, and now is the time when I get to gloat. There are six gladiolus plants with buds, the butterfly bushes are blooming like mad, and I have eight volunteer mini-roses in the bed against the house which I shall transplant in the fall. The plastic outdoor furniture is scrubbed and set out, and the gravelled area below the apple trees is complete, both awaiting only guests.

*happy sigh*

All of this is why I neglect my house and work my fingers raw in the spring.

well good! Now that the gardening is settled and in full bloom, you have just enough time to clean house from all the neglect before "She who must be Obeyed" and her concubine "He who wears Sarongs" arrive.

no no no, Mz. Troll... I will NOT be cleaning your house. We have been cleaning this house for weeks... we are on vacation. I will wander about in a sarong serving drinks or food or such, but I don't do floors, windows, or anything else.
