I am going through another one of those purge… chaos… thingies. Wow.. I have no clue how to describe it, but purge chaos thingies is just about the best way I know how to right now. My poor garden doesn’t even stand a chance. This year I am being completely brutal and eliminating plants that just aren’t working for me. No more hanging on to plants because I feel guilty about wasting money and just have to live with it kinda thinking.  I am also dumping the thought that it needs to be replaced right away. That’s an easy decision right now since the nurseries don’t have a lot of stock. This year will be about patience and self control. BWHAHAHAHAHAH. Oh man. I can’t believe I just said that. Okay, maybe not patience and self control, but maybe better decisions. Hmm… nope. Not that either. Give me a moment to come up with a realistic goal. CHAOS! Yup, that’s the one.
