It's perhaps an odd habit but I like to count things. I don't know if my sister usually counts but I do know she has been counting lately too.
So what have we been counting?
I have been out in the garden at Burnbrae which is as its spring best at this time of year. Remember the big pile of mulch from the felled weed tree. Well I have been counting how many shovels of mulch it takes to fill the wheelbarrow (30) and how many wheelbarrow loads it takes to mulch the garden bed (lost count). I am very pleased with the tidy result.
Later in the week at Rose Orchard Haus garden I was thrilled to count a dozen tulips all in flower at the same time like a mini floriade. They have never done that for me before.
