Can You Please Do Me A Favor...?
I really hate to ask, but I'm going to be away for a couple of days and I wondered if you would water my outside plants for me?
They are mostly begonia's and have a tendency to get very dry. I figure that a little watering about twice a day should be plenty, if you don't mind...
By the way, I don't know if you'll need it or not but just in case, the ladder is in the shed!
Relax, my friend, I'm just pulling your leg! I'm not going anywhere...and these are NOT my flowers! But there is a lesson in here...
Before you agree to help someone out, be sure you have all the facts! It's only the neighborly thing to do things like watering the plants for your buddies down the street, but you might want to get all the little details first...like is the ladder tall enough?
I think the picture speaks for itself, don't you? Oh, and by the way...if you click on the picture, you will get a better idea of the flowers!
Now, my friends, let's take our coffee to the patio and sit for a while...and don't worry! All my plants are sitting on the ground!
