20 years and counting

This weekend I spent Saturday weeding my flower beds and waging the never ending war against the tree seedlings coming up in them, from gum ball tree seedlings, oak tree seedlings (thanks to the Squirrels), Sweet Bay seedlings and the Japanese Privet seedlings it is something that I must keep on top of lest they take over my beds and threaten to turn my front yard into some bizarre version of Sleeping Beauty’s castle.

Wearing my nasty old gardening jeans and a sparkly “Britain” tank top I was leaning over into the bed under the front window to take out a particularly obstinant Japanese Privet sprout when I heard a voice behind me.  “You know you have a really, really, gorgeous butt considering that you are 50 years old”.  I think his meds got the better of him.
