Stop bugging me
One day last week I planned on making a trek about 40 minutes north to an amazing orchid and bromeliad place as I’m updating some of our lanai beds and wanted a particular brom.
This place is the BROMB.COM!
A haven for those who love interesting plants.
If you’re one of those people who like boring plants, you’d not like it.
I decided to hold off on my trip there for another week or so because I remembered it’s love bug season and I didn’t want to sacrifice my car for plants.
It’s a terrible time for everyone except the car wash people because they will upcharge you a billion dollars just to clean dead bugs off the front of your vehicle. bastids.
Rock city*Rock head*rocks in my socks
Speaking of redoing our lanai plants. It’s come to my attention that I might have a bit of OCD.
We at the time (my lawn guys helped) added in rocks to keep the weeds at bay.
It was all so pretty and clean when we finished. Prior to that it resembled a jungle and you couldn’t see the
forest yard through the trees plants.
Recently, (panemic project) a lot of the bromeliads that we added before have been pulled out as I was tired of their BS. You know how some plants can get on your nerves.
Fast forward to today; Suz does not care for all the mismatched rocks; it’s chaos I tell ya.
I know. I have such a stressfull life.
Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got
I’m still, I’m still Suz from the block.
So, a few weeks ago I started sorting my rocks as one does and I put all the gray ones in one area and I loved the look. I’m a fan of cohesiveness.
So, I conferred with my landscape co-partner (you know who) and he agreed that the gray rocks look so much better, so to Homedepot.com we went.
Right now we have 2300lbs worth of beautiful gray Mexican beach rocks in the driveway.
Which is not even remotely close to the pool area but it’s as far as I could get my delivery guy to drop them; he was using a hand cart and I assisted in pulling/pushing this oversized load this far up the driveway.
In general the weight limit that I push/pull is 50lbs. So this is 2250lbs more than I’m comfortable with.
If only I could telepathically remove all the mismatched rocks from the lanai, and then telepathically get the gray rocks to the pool area. There is quite a bit of walking, down a few stairs and up a few stairs for all this to happen.
I should have ordered a wheelbarrow and a few young men at the same time.
My back is starting to hurt thinking of it all.
But, one day, in 2022 when I’m finished I’ll be so happy.
So, is anyone else being obnoxious about minuscule things that we can actually control?
Happy Friday Y’all!
