Three Wishes for Thursday

Iris reticulata 'Lady Beatrix Stanley'
I have three wishes for this Thursday.

I wish that it would stop raining long enough for the raised beds in the vegetable garden to dry out so that I can rip out all the wood that is framing those beds, pull up the landscape fabric in the paths, till up the whole thing, lay out new raised beds, edge them with some kind of stone, and have it all done so I can still plants peas on March 17th.

I wish... well, really, I only have the one wish right now. Everything else is moving along as it should this spring. I don't want to get all garden-greedy.

Thanks to Cindy at My Corner of Katy for coming up with the idea of Three for Thursday.

(Note from the garden fairies... If Carol is only going to use up one of her three wishes, then we want dibs on a wish, too. We also wish it would stop raining, but not because we are anxious for Carol to re-do the vegetable garden raised beds.&n In fact, we are a little fearful of that because if everyone will remember, when she started tearing in to the rest of the garden with that garden designer, we all fled for our very lives back to the vegetable garden. We thought we'd be safe there! Now where are we going to go? What we wish for is that the timing is right and the rain stops long enough so that they can plant some of the new garden beds before she tears up jack in this vegetable garden, as Carol's grandmother used to day. Then we only have to move once. We garden fairies are really homebodies at heart and we don't like all this disruption and displacement in the garden!)

(Note from Dr. Hortfreud... It appears that only two wishes have been used here. I'll take the third wish, if no one else wants it. I wish that Carol finds another place to sow seeds for a few pea vines because if she doesn't get to plant peas somewhere in her garden on March 17th, I'm going to need some help handling the gardenological impact on her psyche.)

Dear Carol, may your wish be granted, and those of the fairies and good doctor as well. Doc has a good point, you had better plant those peas somewhere, even if you have to use a container or the World Of Carol will tilt precariously!

Hey Fairies, come on over to Tennessee to visit your cousins during the tear up. We have plenty of room!

Carol, I wish that rain would come here to Mumbai instead. we sure could use it!
There! that's 2 for the price of 1, right?

Aren't you supposed to have 'March winds' and 'April Showers'? Here's hoping the rain slows down and the ground dries out.

I just adore your imagination! Your mind just must be full of rainbows and fairies and joy...love every single one of your posts!

...and I also wish the rain would let up...just for a little bit, and come back in July...

Delightful... I think you should listen to those garden fairies.

Cindy, MCOK said...

Carol, I'm delighted that you, the fairies and Dr H all joined in Three for Thursday! I hope more garden bloggers will do so this spring.

Also being a zone 5 gardener, I must say that those garden fairies must still be hibernating in my garden---no sign of them yet! No bulbs emerging thru the snow. Hopefully this week's 40's and a possible 50 degrees will encourage them...I will be on the lookout!

I hope all three wishes get granted. If I had three wishes I might spend them all on rain, a warm rainy spring, NO rain the weekend of the Rose Viewing and soaking rains once week, at night, all summer long - except Heath Fair weekend. No rain that weekend - or did I just make four wishes.

Rose said...

I hope all your wishes are granted, Carol. I join you in wishing for some dry, sunny and warmer days soon or Dr. Hortfreud might have another patient:)

May your wish come true.
Me I wish I have sun.

Kathy said...

I wish I could see the ground. I am tired of seeing snow. Especially since I did see the ground for about 12 hours--in spots--and I know that there are flowers in bud under all that snow.

Søren said...

May your March wishes come true and your May Dream Gardens continue to be a pleasant home for the garden fairies. (And may the next few days give enough dry weather to not land Dr. Hortfreud with too great a workload.)

Bom said...

I wish you could send the rain over to me. We need it badly.

I have an arabian oil lamp that "may" have a genie in it that you could borrow. . . Your wishes for your vegetable garden seem to require the services of one!

It is important to have plans...

Oh! I really pray for you that your wish come true very soon and you do your plan on the time you deceit.
Thank you for sharing with us.
