Sounds like a line from a bad 80′s romantic comedy, huh?
Well, it is true. I have such a hard time committing when I garden. Ok, true confessions, my yard is mostly grass…how boring! And not even good grass at that…but for another post indeed.
So I am a little jealous of Chris’s path…it is dramatic and beautiful. But for me a super BOLD move, hence why I have no path.
Here are my fears that keep me from making the leap:
1)Bold move, could mean expensive…and what if it doesn’t look good?
2)I just don’t have the vision. You know some people can visualize things…i just don’t have that. I have this problem in junk shops and yard sales too. I want to find something and transform it. But that is where my imagination falls off a cliff.
3)Hard scapes…brick, stone, 2X4, old railroad ties, slate pieces….i just can’t do it. Believe me, I have gone to those places that sell this stuff. Even the best sales person couldn’t get me to commit. Plus, there are so many choices….
4)Lack of knowledge…what if I pick a plant there or a bush here and it is the wrong spot and the other stuff I mix it with doesn’t have the same needs. Yikes!
So that is my true confession…I just can’t commit. How about you?
In response to my own neurotic sparring, I pledge to take baby steps. As the weather warms, I will pick out one spot in my yard and transform it. I will do some homework, finally get the nerve to commit at the hard-scape place and share the progress with you all. How about you? Ready to take a baby step? Take the transform-one-corner-and-commit-challenge with me?
