My Great Idea For A TV Show ...

I cut my grass for the first time this season. (And I put my snow shovel away.)

That is about the depth of my landscaping interest. I may stick a few plants in a few pots depending on my mood in a given year, but beyond that, these thumbs are not green.

That said, as I was mowing today, I spied something I haven't noticed in my yard before.

"Oh, hello," I said. "What are you?"

Some kind of weed, no doubt. But a sweet weed.

So I took a picture of it and as I was downloading it to my computer, I thought, "I should have a TV show called The Entirely Passive Gardener."

I love this idea. I could walk around my yard and just notice things that are growing.

I'm sure it would be a huge hit, and with the money I would earn from the show, I could hire a landscaper to make my yard more presentable. And a gardener to maintain it.

But I'd still cut the grass. Probably. On the nice days.

FYI, your "weed" is called creeping myrtle. My grandmother had creeping myrtle planted to cover a steep bank down to the street in front of her house in Pittsfield, Mass.

Thank you, weed expert!

"Myrtle" is now my favorite word of the day.

Creeping myrtle was the pachysandra of the 1940s (on the East coast, anyway).
