It’s better to have a partner than go it alone.
Share the work, share the wealth.
And if one falls down, the other helps,
But if there’s no one to help, tough!
OK, I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned our rain garden plans, but here’s the skinny. Every winter, our back yard miraculously transforms from a pleasant grassy space to a wetland. Migratory birds stop there. Frogs ribbit. Sedges and reeds proliferate. When Carmel is over, she comes back muddy to her knees. Some of that is hyperbole, but not egregiously so.
