Wait, come back, don't click the "X" and move on! This isn't another post about the weather and the freezing temperatures and what that has done to trees, like my crabapple, and shrubs and flowers that were coaxed to bloom early by unseasonably warm days. It's not, I promise!
Instead, this post is about advice for gardeners, for anyone who has to garden in public places like their front yard.
The other day, I caught one of my neighbors bending over with her backside to the street and I realized that she was not aware that bending over at the waist like that, in addition to not being good for your back if you are lifting something, causes your lower backside to appear double in size.
And that's my advice today.
Never bend over at the waist with your back facing the street.
It gives all the neighbors a broad view. This applies to women and men both. After all, no one wants to look like one of those garden cutouts that is supposed to look like a lady bending over exposing her bloomers or a man bending over with low riding pants.
