Gardening tool I’m never without: my phone


I stayed up late last night to work on a blog post. I was quite proud of myself because I even scheduled it to go up automatically. Often I get close to finishing them, but work on them a little bit in the morning before I hit “publish,” but it’s so much nicer when I finish them and they just magically appear.

But today it did not magically appear. I have no idea why. I only know that it’s obviously stuck on my home computer. But I didn’t want to leave you without a post.

So I give you these three videos I caught while gardening this weekend. I always have my phone with me when I garden, not because I’m expecting a call (cell phones rarely work at our house in summer, don’t ask me why), but because I’m a serial audiobook listener and I love listening to books while I garden. I just started the third book in the Game of Thrones series. I’ve been watching the television show but I’ve never read the books so now I’m going back and listening them. This book is 47 hours long! You can do a heck of a lot of weeding in 47 hours of a book.

Anyway, the added benefit of always having my phone with me is that I can catch photos or videos on the fly. There’s no way I would have captured this hummingbird moth having a good old time in the zinnias if I had to run into the house to get my phone.

You might have seen a couple of these if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, but I don’t think I put all three of them in any one place.
