This morning I mentioned to my daughter that I have just uploaded a video on houseresortYouTube channel about : what to wear and be comfortable when you are gardening. When she casually looked at me and said “Mommy who’s going to watch that? nobody works in their garden anymore, you’re the only one who still does it ”!!! First I was surprised by her reaction, but then I realized she was saying something that I already knew. When I am out in the garden trying to make a video of something I am working on I have to stop to let the blowers and the lawnmowers calm down before I can continue with my videos. I rather have birds chirping in the background of my videos than a lawnmower. Sometimes I just sit next to my work waiting for few minutes for natural sounds to take over before I continue.
There are many hobbies that we pick up to enjoy our interests. Writing, reading, walking, fishing, and gardening, are some that my friends and family do to relax and keep the world around them in slow motion. Gardening is my favorite hobby, and photography is an important part of my everyday gardening. I start my season in early spring and I work at keeping my plants and flowers healthy until the first cold day, usually late fall. To be safe & comfortable is very important to me, and makes being outdoors a lot more enjoyable, and the long days less eventful.
Coming across snakes, angry birds, and bees is too common, and even though it does provide a great chance for an interesting nature video, it also keeps me on my toes 😳. Gardners like me depend on comfortable, protective clothes when we are out and about, and to have a hat, gloves, and a cell phone close by makes life less painful and gardening more enjoyable. If you would like to watch the video on what I recommend to wear working in the garden please go to the link below, and leave your comments, and suggestions. I will be happy to receive them. Maybe then I can tell my daughter I am not going extinct👩🏻🌾
