Dear readers,

 

Chers lecteurs,

 

Thank you so much for the encouraging words on my gardening... I'm still busy as a bee in the garden, but all the weeding I do every day after work is hardly post-worth.

There's just a tiny transformation I thought I should  share.

 

Merci pour vos mots d'encouragements quant à mon projet jardinage. J'y travaille d'arrache-mauvaises-herbes, mais cela ne fait pas des articles très passionnants. Il y a juste une petite chose que je voudrais vous montrer.

 

I've always been bugged (see how I'm trying to keep the title metaphore going?) by that stupid post at the back of my "verger".

I've been looking for something to give it a meaning.

 

And I found it last weekend.

 

Regardez ce que j'ai trouvé ce weekend pour habiller mon poteau qui m'énervait.

(Yes, I did mow right after, but forgot to take a picture then...)

It's an "insect shed" and it actually has a triple meaning. Do you see where I was going with my stupid metaphore?

 

C'est une maison à insecte qui remplit pour moi un triple rôle.

 

1) It gives my ugly post a "raison d'être".

1) Cela donne à ce poteau une raison d'être (et si, si, ça se dit en anglais aussi, c'est pas que j'ignore comment traduire).

 

2) It is supposed to become the home of very useful-for-the-garden insects as it says on the box.

2) C'est censé devenir la maison de tout plein d'insectes utiles au jardin. Si, si, c'est écrit sur la boîte!

3) It was made by hand by an ESAT, which is a company that employs disabled people (I know, I read this word is not PC, but I'm not a PC person)... It's a project I really belive in, so I'm willing to spend money for what I believe in (does that make up for my not-being-PC?).

3) C'est un produit fait à la main par une société qui emploie des personnes handicapées, genre de projets que j'aime bien soutenir...

Also, the apple tree I was so worried about is doing fine.

And  we've been spending so much time in the garden during this sunny weekedn that even Shadow was tired...

 

On a tellement passé de temps dans le jardin pendant ce weekend ensoleillé que même Shadow n'en pouvait plus.

But he found the perfect spot...

I LOVE the way cats find the funniest places to curl up and rest! Yours is a stunner!

And I love your new insect house....very stylish indeed!

Effectivement, ton poteau a l'air moins bête. J'espère que ce HLM plaira aux insectes. Ma maison à mésanges a été visitée plusieurs fois, mais aucune ne s'y est installée...
