The Big Tease

There I have said it. He is!

Last autumn, I spent days in preparation for Teza. I primped, I powered, I removed unsightly shaggy bits,(weeds that is), I did everything a poor girl could do to entice him.

He made vague promises, but no actual commitment.

Isn’t that just like a man.

So here I am, looking like this,

empty, oh so empty.

Teza, when are you coming to fill me?

    You are too much, Deborah. Maybe you need to play harder to get?

    What is Teza going to put there – do fill us in! Meanwhile you can enjoy contemplating the zen of emptiness – it’s good for the soul πŸ™‚

    Dearest D, Oh dear! You may indeed have been overlooked; sadly I have been forsaken.

    No gardener will resist an empty flower bed if given the right incentive.
    Have you offered to drive him there and back?
    Have you seen his famous shade garden up close and have you indicated which plants you have fallen in love with?
    His plants are part of his extended family; I suppose that he needs encouragement to part with them.

    Hmm, perhaps some jealousy would work? You could start to fill his bed and see if it causes him to spring into action? πŸ˜‰

    I have not at all forgotten you…… I have, and this may be viewed as an excuse by some, been burning the proverbial candle at both ends this year at the nursery. Less eight [count them!] empolyees this year, it has been one project after another. I do not have to tell you what my distant [Sarnia] family have been saying of late. I cancelled a trip home in order to attend the IGC in Chicago. As a result I have been all but disowned by the woman who gave birth to me. I am [well up until darkness fell] in the process of dividing perennials. I have this plot in mind. I would like to be able to clone myself but as of today, the scientific implications elude me! I shall email with more details. Can you possibly find it in your green heart to forgive me?

      Oh Teza, sigh, all you had to do was ask., lol.
      I know what a crazy business you are in, and it is very hard to get employees when the work is ‘seasonal’. Hopefully we will be able to get together.

    Hi Deborah~~ I’ve got the perfect solution: plant a Cercis ‘Forest Pansy’ tree right dead center. He’ll come. πŸ™‚

    Rebecca said what I was going to say. Get Teza jealous. Maybe a little Photoshop addition would get him moving. I almost was going to fill the bed with virtual plants for you and finish the rock work. See if that lights the fire.

    Tried to post this on your previous post but WordPress said it was a duplicate – perhaps because there is another Barbara?
    I’m so far behind – on everything, but especially reading blogs! Decided to start from the bottom of the My Yahoo page where my oldest and most favorite blogs live. They’ve been ignored lately because I run out of steam when I start at the top. You live at the bottom, Pam/Digging, Margaret Roach, Each Little World. You are all wonderful.
