isn’t that typical – we’ve not seen a watering can for ages and then two come wandering down the road attached to two shaggy looking chaps carrying plants.
these chaps looked really depressed as they sloped down the road, but they were quite symetrical with their watercans and plants.
i asked if i could take a photo and unfortunately (for us) they smiled.
it was valentine’s day yesterday and spring is on the way. traditionally Valentine’s day is the day that birds chose their partners for the year, but we can see the animal kingdom pairing up wherever we look (particularly on a saturday night in british drinking towns).
i think the same might also apply to watering cans. we saw a couple going for a walk last week. and here is a couple in our church nesting behind the font.
sometimes you realise stuff when it’s too late.
for example i have a nagging fear that when i’m old and in a home i might suddently realise i love bungy jumping and wish i’d done it when i was more sprightly. i’m not worried enough about it enough to actually do a bungy jump though.
tonight i realised i love watering the garden. i haven’t done it all year. but it was great. maybe i’ll try remembering this fact at the beginning of next summer rather than the end.
