Saturday began with a short walk for Her Highness, and then I got to work on ridding the front yard of all its cones. It was pleasant work at the temperature was only 20° when I started. I’ve plenty of work to keep my busy for weeks, including finishing clearing the wasteland near the new fence and gate.
But I tired easily, probably because Friday was a non-stop day. However, I persevered, picking up Sheba poop and all the cones. And, of course, I had to thoroughly water all the gardens as this endless drought continues.
Tomorrow, however, rain is predicted. I have my doubts. We’ll see, but it would be wonderful if it did. Right now, at 6:30 on Sunday morning, it’s 13° and it’s positively thrilling to be outside and so wonderfully comfortable.
I’m going on the big community dog walk and then I have some planting to do of all the new ground cover I bought the other day. I also may do some cleaning up of the gardens if it doesn’t get too hot. Once the gardens are clean, I can go back to tilling the wasteland and getting it ready for seeding.
Yesterday I took some photos around the yard. Here they are:
|This corn silk is gorgeous!|
|One of my many Hydrangeas.|
|My fountain, (empty) birdbath and that dish on|
the pedestal is for bees.
|The curtain on my studio door to prevent birds|
from flying against the glass.
|My herb garden is thriving.|
|There were four Ferns here when I moved it. Now|
my Fern garden is full of them.
|My back door/deck is where I live in Summer.|
|You can see where my gate will go tomorrow. The richly|
coloured fence panels are the new ones.
|Even with all the grass dead, I love how 'clean' and|
inviting my backyard looks.
