I have been so occupied with "life" for the past year that I have neglected my backyard garden. I took a good look at it the other day and I noticed that most of the plants are overgrown. The grass needs to be reseeded. The mango tree's top had to be cut. The climbers have "climbed" over the neighbor's roof and the small pond is filled with tadpoles! Can I possibly spruce up the garden before Christmas? And while I'm at it, would a thinking man statue near the pond bode well? Whatever, I seriously have to tend to my garden.
