It was great and magical...until I got a royal case of poison ivy. Fun. Or not.
But seriously, after visiting around in Arlington, Virginia, I now know that I have a lot to be grateful to have such a great home in a great neighborhood with great neighbors.
And this garden reminds me daily how much The Lord provides for his children. Really, truly, he loves us and wants to do us good. He knew to provide me with this jungle of a garden to bring order to that reminds me of how much He knew I would need this project now that I am not working.
So, I will go ahead and get back to ripping more vines out (albeit with some Technu, ie poison ivy control lotion) and bewares of hoses dragged through the garden...
