Howie and I were enjoying our
morning ritual today under the pergola
and I look over to my right.
(forgot to show this part yesterday)
This is the walkway behind the
enclosed porch and the open porch,
and follows around
to the south side of house.
I spied some orange!
The good kind, not the menace.
These were not open yesterday.
I'm over the moon.
I never thought it would work
so I planted a bunch in too small of space
assuming maybe one would live.
So I'll either have to train up or replant.
It's as if my green thumb
long dormant has returned. I have tomato plants
and 1 green pepper.
(that project may be a failure)
Anyhoot I am so happy.
I have a half dozen of these guys
that travel back and forth along the wall.
They sleep and hide behind my birdhouses.
Howie sees one and dead stops
as if he's a real pointer spaniel.
He watched us all through my coffee and juice.
My project list is growing.
I'm energized by the near completion
of yard, still want to paint the
dog run fence and I may paint the front
of the gate into the yard
to match my front door. I think
the pop of color will be good.
I'll get some more posies and
24 bulbs coming soon.
6 colors - 4 of each
They are a shorter variety
and will front all the beds
on the side and partial back.
I also bought a fig tree
which everyone says
won't make it, but I'm determined.
Mine will be in a pot
so that it can be moved to help it survive... hope
I have to paint re-touch bathroom,
and kitchen cabinets, re-paint garage floor
and as always still purging down.
Got my taxes done yesterday
and returned 15 books to the library,
and picked up another 12.
I'm on a roll!
