A Garden Carol

On Monday’s Garden Clean up, this is what I found….

Twelve hundred doodle bugs
Eleven thousand dandelions
Ten aching fingers
Nine pounds of pulled weeds
Eight outsized hollies
Seven mystery offshoots
Six dead spring flowers
Five. Garter. Snakes.
Four painful blisters
Three thorn stabs
Two trees need pruning
And a Giant Mound of Angry Fire Ants
