OK. I admit it. I am turning into an old woman.
First, it was the bird thing. My high school friend (her name will be omitted to save her dignity) and I are obsessed with watching birds and figuring out what kind they are. This concerned us both because it is something "our moms would do". Nonetheless, it is a subject that comes up almost every time we talk and we really dig birds.
Now, it is the gardening! I knew I had a problem when I told my mom today that I had bought the last of my flowers for this year and she laughed. Well, she roared, actually. This is something my mom enjoys with her friend. Something that she can dabble with and enjoy in her spare time.
What is up with me?! I LOVE it. I am obsessed with looking at flowers, flower magazines and garden centers. I could spend hours looking at my flowers, dead-heading, watering, planting, watching for seed growth, etc. This is something grandmas do, not mothers of toddlers! I should be watching for children falling off lawn chairs or crossing the street illegally, not new buds or leaf growth!!
The first step to recovery is admitting the problem. I have done it. We'll see how I do.....
Here are some photos of my latest obsession. Fear not! I will post more as they mature and grow throughout the summer. I also have to note that these are just a COUPLE of my flowers. I just haven't captured them all on film yet.
