We've spent so much time together the past nine years.
Other than my trusted assistant, Yvette, you have been my nearest companion.
You've contained all my clippings, housed plants, hauled my mulch, and toted my baby plants to blogger plant exchanges. Whatever I needed you for, you were there.
I noticed, when you first cracked, but I looked the other way. Years of gardening gets to the best of us. Rain, sleet, snow, hail, heat, sun, you made it through it all like a champ.
I guess I could wrap you now in duct tape, but I can never make you whole again.
While your little green brother has helped out in the past, he can never fill your larger shoes.
You will be missed my friend.
