Why do I bother?

I should preface this by saying that I don't garden. In the past 11 years and 9 homes, we've only had one actual living plant inside our home. It was given to us as an apartment-warming gift when we arrived in Korea. I promptly killed it.

So I was feeling rather proud of myself recently when I planted some flower seeds around a tree near our curb. After watering and feeding regulary, I was seeing some results. Tiny shoots and leaves were making themselves known.

Today, our lawn care company came to do the lawn. And some idiot weed-whacked everything around that tree.

Ack! Sorry about your flowers, that sucks!

That stinks! I probably would have run outside and whacked him!

It was too late to do that by the time I discovered it. So I did the next best thing and called his boss to complain.
