The Ever-Changing Landscape
Life is an ever-changing landscape. People who don't anticipate change may find that they will suffer when change does occur. We can plan for change so we are better prepared, but sometimes change just happens. Then we just have to deal with it. That's life.
The ever-changing landscape applies to real estate, careers, politics, personal life, etc. but it also applies to...well, landscape!
After last October's freak storm, my landscape looked like this:
We had trees down everywhere, which had to be removed.
We also realized that we had to replace the septic system which further destroyed the yard. Imagine huge excavating machinery digging trenches and digging up the yard.
Long story short, the septic system has been installed, the yard was graded and reseeded, and the grass is growing nicely. We didn't think we would ever be done, but we are.
Except for one thing: With the loss of our big beautiful trees, my shade gardens are now in full sun, so I spent last weekend moving my prized Frances Williams hostas to more hospitable areas. No small task, given that they are three feet in diameter.
I could never have planned for this. I just had to deal with it. The landscape changes whether we like it or not!
