It rained again last night. Must have been a good storm. I slept through it. It's partly cloudy and 50 degrees. The few rays of sunlight are a promise of what is coming.
I'm not sure what I will do today. There are dishes to wash, floors to sweep, the basement of course needs to be cleaned again, and coffee to drink. I had better get started on the coffee.
2:31pm - I finished the trellis.
I used the chainsaw to chop up the rest of the pallets for firewood. It's a lot of work using a hammer and a chisel to break them apart, and I can't think of anything else to build with them. With the coming cold weather this week, having a hot fire in the basement will be nice.
The sun never came out. It's still cloudy and 52 degrees. The daffodils don't seem to mind.
Nor the ditch lilies at the end of the driveway.
There's even a sprout on the very tender purple queen surrounding the oak tree.
The 'Full Moon' Coreopsis is putting out lots of new growth. I need to divide this next month.
The camellia is still going strong.
Each week, I try to take a few pictures of the yard from the same vantage point. At the end of the year, I will be able to create a slide show with the 52 images showing the progression across the seasons. Right now, it's obviously pretty dull, but here's today's image.
I finished early today. With no more chores on my list, I think I'll head to the grocery store. I've got some beef in the freezer and I'm thinking of making a stew. I need some potatoes and onions. Maybe next year, I can eat the ones I've grown instead.
