Coming Home to a Garden Gift...
No, not the bouquet--this is the amaranth and fennel bouquet that I couldn't post Sunday. My garden gift was much, much better than mere flowers: A pair of #7 Felco pruners.
Seriously, I feel like there ought to be a way to put a golden halo around those words: "Felco pruners." My jaw dropped when I was allowed to open my eyes and saw them in front of my face. I guess he missed me... :)
I have never actually used a pair of these babies before, but they have a cool rotating handle and the blades pass each other smoothly with barely a whisper and no light between them. I'm now wracking my brain trying to figure out what I can prune. Seriously. I may have to solicit some of the neighbors to see if they have anything I can cut down just to try them out!
As for the rest of the garden, I have no idea how it fared while I was away--I arrived back home after dark and couldn't discern much in the light of the garage-front flourescents. I'll have to report on that tomorrow.
