I was back in the garden doing a bit more work… I have noticed many plants growing quickly from just a few weeks ago. New growth is so nice to see. I think with all this rain we have been getting may be just what the plants need. I only got one day of work this week as the weather has just been horrible once again. I am not big fan of working in the rain, I will if I have to, but most times I have other things to get done rather than being pelting on. I am almost done the backyard, I worked on the side gardens trimming away the old so the new can pop up. I already have flowers showing themselves, which was enjoyable. I can’t wait for the rest to bloom. The pool is coming along and I see swimming and pool games in the forecast, woohoo!
In my midst of cleaning, I had a wooden cottage like birdhouse that looked like it had been hit by a tornado, chewed to bits, and the door hanging off, oh those darn squirrels. This time I purchased 2 metal ones, lets see those squirrels try to chew that. I hung my new birdhouses proudly and wait to see birds flock to them. I scattered some seed on the ground so the squirrels may enjoy nibbling there rather than try to hog the feed in the houses.
I am still trying to decide what I should do with an area in the yard, lay some new sod with a water feature? maybe a fountain? a vegetable garden? I am kind of liking that idea, some cherry tomatoes, shallots, garlic, ohhh so many good things to plant, hmmm the possibilites are endless. If I am planning a veggie gardenI think I better hurry before the season is over, I know how time can suddenly get the best of you!
