Oh come on now! I have used the excuse for years that my creativity is limited by my budget, I need to hang on to that, other wise I have to admit that I just don't have any creativity.

Rolling on the floor laughing Oh come on, you know that's a great cover to hide behind! And you are too creative, you're always coming up with stuff that amazes me and that I think "what a great idea"!

Creativity is in the eye of the beholder. My creativity is limited by time and energy. Ok so I have more time now I'm retired but it takes a little longer to get things done. Budget not so much a concern as that is now limited by fixed income. All I need is more energy and a bigger chainsaw.
You sure do move a lot of mulch around Annie! Thumbs up I gave up mulching years ago as our loose chickens decided on where is would be spread.

I've got chickens too Bob, and I let them run loose for part of every day. Yes, they sure do like to rearrange the mulch! But with my climate here in southcentral PA, I need to put a lot of compost and mulch down because we can go from months of drought to heavy rain, from below zero to 100+ temps and I find that the more organic stuff there is in/on the soil, the better the plants cope. Also, I'm working heavy sticky yellow clay over fractured limestone and it can be a nightmare in places. And as for creativity, you know, unlike those lucky souls who can be creative indoors (painting, crafts, etc.), we're creative on a much bigger more difficult scale and I think we all have to give ourselves some credit for that...
What I'm hoping to do someday is lure a sturdy teenager onto the property and convince him/her that there's an expensive new IPhone buried somewhere in the garden and if they dig long enough.....
