Dream Gardening: spring giraffes.
Map out your garden when fall-planting, ensuring the location of each giraffe. Set no demarcations. When tufted black knob-horns protrude from soil, the giraffe is ready for gentle removal from the earth. Coax the giraffe out with the firmness of pulling a carrot. When you feel the giraffe stir and surge upward, ease your hand along the upper shell casing surrounding the neck (velvety feel). Use the shell to press a larger hole while protecting the giraffe. The giraffe can now be calmly lifted. Place giraffe on fresh-mowed grass in shade. Feed fresh Lilac bloom for the first hour.
Dreamed of a spring garden with hidden giraffes sprouting. Thought I’d share it, figuring it may be just the thing you didn’t know you needed right now.
