The Afternoon Mail

As I wandered past the garden on my way to get the mail
I noticed one petunia plant was looking somewhat frail.
Fertilizer just might help, as everyone supposes
And while I'm at it, why not add a bit around the roses.
I watered the hydrangeas and the fuchsias too.
Pretty soon I realized there was quite a bit to do.
I could see the morning glory, winding thru the stock
And the wilted hosta was something of a shock.
I yanked out the Ajuga plants - they’d over-populated
Then got the shovel from the shed. A fern was looking dated
Later, I decided as the light began to fail
There will be lots of time tomorrow for me to get the mail.

Wow isn't this the truth? I try not to cast my eyes right nor left, and instead walk out to the mailbox and straight back to the house!
