How do you deal with hard times? I try to maintain a modicum of humor...plus I pray a lot.
With all of this, I've decided to rename my garden based on the weather conditions. Since I love languages, I've reached into the WORD barrel and come up with these:
NEW GARDEN NAMES for TROPICAL TEXANA:
GARTEN KAPUTT (German for 'it's all gone!) :when a HARD FREEZE kills all of my tropical plants
LE JARDIN LATANIER :when I get FLOODS and my garden is a swamp ( Cajun French for swamp palm garden...by the way that sounds very romantic doesn't it?
DRAGON HOSES :when I have to water endlessly (said with a Scottish accent)
LA SECA GRANDE when it's so DRY I can't stand it anymore (Spanish for THE BIG DRY)
BRUN HAVEN :and finally, when it's all dead (Danish for BROWN GARDEN)
Right now I'm still hopeful, so I'm sticking with DRAGON HOSES soon to be LA SECA GRANDE.
DRAGON (DRAGGIN') HOSES...this week's garden theme
