I’m always blown away by people who continue to water their lawn long into autumn. Down the street, a man unabashedly waters daily. He has since we moved in, and he did yesterday. This sprinkler vacillates and oscillates from side to side and covers that still-green carpet in water. Every. Single. Day.
I’ve brushed his efforts off as fruitless, silly even. Really, I’m no botanist, so whether this will make a difference come spring or not is beyond me.
But one thing is evident: this man cares about the roots.
It’s the same reason behind my parents’ lawncare regimen. Fertilizer, on a schedule. Getting ready for coming months. They care about the roots.
And those who plant tulips must adhere to a similar course of action. For beautiful flowers in a few seasons, the roots must be cared for now.
As a new-to-full-time entrepreneur, I’m in the planting stages. It’s tempting to rush into the flower-picking, the fruit-harvesting, the vegetable gathering. I want what I want now.
But roots. Oh, roots . . . they are what need love, care and attention now. It’s the season for tending to roots, after all.
Thrilled to pieces to link up with Five Minute Friday on Lisa Jo’s blog once again.
