Looks like a cooler day here and rain later, which is a good thing.
Been very busy and the yard is beginning to look amazing. We have to be patient and not do to much yet as it is too early to place annuals in the gardens. We did go plant shopping on Monday, so the garage is full of all the planters filled with flowers etc waiting to get out doors for good. They do get out for a few hours everyday to climatize. My favourite go to plant is dark red geraniums and buy 30 every year for some planters that we move around in the gardens depending on what perennials are doing. I also got wave petunias for hanging baskets, king coleus & 2 different coloured potato vines for tall planters, also some portulaca for 2 small pots to see how they look in the hands of a garden ornament & marigolds. We replanted the oxyalis too. We still have to do more plant shopping as the citrenella hadn't came in yet and it looks like at least 2 clematis didn't survive the winter. I also forgot to get a plant for the obelisk. Most of the gardens are perennials, lots of hosta & coral bells (Heuchera) in lots of different colours.
I also have to report that I was wrong about the person whose trees came dome on our neighbours property. He has been out and cut up all the wood and already moved most of the mess. Interesting is that he is not a social person at all so if anyone is out he is gone. Our neighbours had been away all day Sunday for a family event and that is when most of the work got done.
I am thinking all this outdoor work should be counted as exercise but not sure how to count it.
I have also hit a plateau, so hoping it jolts my system back on track.
Take care. Enjoy the journey
