the lemon tree
Can i say just a little warning to all those avid gardeners out there...DANGER WILL ROBINSON!
When one is pruning particularly feral trees with lots of debris and fine particles falling from them that it would be advisable to wear goggles....otherwise one could end up in rather a bit of pain and unable to see clearly along with a stretch of say 2 hours at the surgery on a saturday waiting to find what the culprit is in ones eye!!!! and compliments of said item, a tiny scratch on ones eyeball....
After all that venting i must say the eye much better today and most of the swelling is gone along with most of the irritation and the doc said within 24hrs the scratch should heal...'oh good' i said with such relief..
Just to add a little more interest to the story doc says ...'you look familiar', I say 'did i draw your house? or photos perhaps?'...'Oh' he says, 'do you work for so and so?' ...'yes I do'.. 'Oh that must be it!' he says...'sorry' I say 'don't remember peeps much but I would remember your house!' a little chuckle later and he draws a picture of my eye...'you've been practicing'... i say, he laughs 'oh great, I get to scratch out a picture for someone who draws for a living'...hehehhe we both chuckle ... I think it was the relief of the pain to be gone and quite possibly the fun of looking through orange coloured dye he'd place in my eye....
so there you have it, just a little gardening can turn into such a drama of a day, and that was my saturday......oh and next time ang wear goggles!
