I've been stressing for 2 weeks now!
But let me start at the beginning.
When we opened our salon 10 years ago, I started bringing in cut flower arrangements from my gardens for a table in the waiting area. Got lots of complements from customers. They thought I must have a fantastic yard. So I took in pics of the yard for people to see. You can see them here. my yard
So, now I'm having a plant sale. A lot of my perennials have gotten too large and are crowding each other, so I thought I'd divide, pot up the extras and have a plant sale! Proceeds going to our motor home gas fund. And we could really use a gas fund. But that's another story.
Now I've got a lot of customers are coming to it. And of course, they'll want a tour of the yard!
So knowing the yard doesn't look near as good in person as in pics, I've been working my ass off trying to get it into some sort of decent shape, so as to not disappoint them too much. So I'm stressing! I mean the yard looks pretty good to me, but I certainly wouldn't put it in a garden tour. I've made a lot of mistakes in the yard, and most are to big now to correct!
Like why did I plant the Weeping Cherry so close to the Viburnum? which has gotten way bigger than I expected! The pine trees in the shade garden are too close together! Most of the errors most people probably won't notice. Hopefully with such a large yard to look at they won't notice the little things that I see.
And do I even have a good enough selection of plants for my sale?
What will people be expecting?
I'm blowing everything out of proportion,
I'm sure everyone will love the yard,
I'm sure I'll sell all the plants,
now totaling 215,
Everything will be fine.
I've got more weeding to do!!!
