weeding-the-garden1My sixth offering from a book I bought in a charity shop in the summer…..

Law of respite:

You always dreamed of a garden to relax in. Now you’ve got it, the time spent weeding it cancels out the time spent enjoying it.

Justified sloth:

Reasons against weeding the plot are always much more potent than those in favour.

Tare’s Reality:

Weeds always move in to fill a gardening vacuum.
