Situation in my Garden Shed

How did all this stuff collect in my little garden shed?

How did all this stuff collect in my little garden shed?

How did I let it get so bad??  I had washed all the pots I used to start the plants for this year’s garden but I couldn’t put them away as I couldn’t even get into my shed because of all the equipment, etc., I had pushed in there.  What is it with flower pots?  Do they breed behind my back?  I can’t imagine where they all came from.  I could see my late son, Pete, chiding me from heaven.  He had built me this shed for Mother’s Day several years ago and it had gradually become more and more disorganized.  Spurred on by Pete spirit, I took everything out, swept it out and I even replaced the eight worst linoleum tiles.  At least two-thirds of the flower pots are scheduled for recycling.  Two days later, it is all put back and tidy.

Pete is smiling down on me now.

    Beautiful post! Pete’s beaming and you have inspired us all. I’m starting a “clean-up” project in half an hour!

    I looked at the first photo and thought “George!!” But guess I can’t blame it on George, after all? Pots do seem to accumulate like crazy, don’t they? I used to keep them, but now I give them away at the twice-yearly plant swap I go to in Arlington. Your shed looks wonderful. Pete would be very proud indeed. 🙂
