Lists, Lists, Lists
I'm always making lists! I have lists everywhere; I make lists, and I lose lists. I have LISTS OF LISTS!
I remind myself of that dear New Zealand gardener, Moosey, "head gardener" at Moosey's Country Garden. Or, the other way around: She reminds me of me! (chuckles!)
And, I've been known to complain (oops, yes, I've complained) of my short - and getting shorter - memory. Husband/Best Friend/Chief Photographer has said repeatedly: "Write it down; make you a list!" My answer is: "I do!--I do!!!"
I sometimes reach the point I think to myself: Be done with the list making - and GET MOVING, get out there and get DOING! I smiled when I read Moosey's same thoughts; I guess a gardener, is a gardener, is a gardener, is a gardener.
(Apologies, Miss Stein.)

More about "Moosey". The name "Moosey" was given Mary as a pet name, a name of endearment given her by her children. I think it is delightful! Most families that I know have at least one member named Mary; so if one says "Mary" to me, I have no idea which Mary until further explanation. But, if one says "Moosey" to me, it is such a distinctive name, I know immediately the person to whom they refer - totally charming!
If you haven't met Moosey and her wonderful garden, don't waste your time reading my blog, go straight to her website. You are in for a treat! http://www.mooseyscountrygarden.com
