My Kingdom for a Gardener

The backyard is weedy, the hedges need trimming and the garden lacks vision. It's about this time of year that I always wish we had a gardener. For most household tasks, I appreciate the doing as well as the getting done -- polishing the furniture, washing the dishes, sweeping the floor. But as much as I love being outside, I find the outdoor tasks more daunting. The gap between the cottage garden of my dreams and the real, hodgepodge yard we have is too great to bridge.
Luckily, I know this stage will pass. Once the grass is mown and the summer perennials bloom, I will once again accept our yard for what it is. But until kingdom for a gardener!
