It's 61 degrees and still cloudy. I wish the sun would come out on a day that I'm not at the store. Just once.
I started early this morning. The brick edgers that didn't match my aesthetics were removed and loaded onto the truck for delivery this evening.
The landscape timbers Carla traded for the stones were easy to install since most of the digging had already been done. The level says they are. My eyes tell me they aren't.
I transplanted and divided some bee balm and other things. I'm a bit worried. Upon close inspection, I think there are going to be a lot of reseeds. These were taken from two different areas in the garden.
What I claimed were violets are not.
The 6' tall arborvitae that cost me a whole penny has turned green. This one grows to 70' tall and 20' wide. It's going to hide a whole house on the other side of the gully.
Looking back through the ivy, roses, and various undergrowth, you just can see the house from the nice neighbor's yard.
I was over there to get a look at these.
One sad note, I neglected my tomatoes when it rained last week. Then I neglected them when it dropped below 40 degrees. I guess they just weren't ready for the outside world. I'll be sowing them again today in small water bottle containers. There will be a couple of varieties I can't replace since I no longer have seed. But the ones I really want, I've got.
It's only 12:30. I don't know what to do with myself from now til 5 when Carla stops by. Maybe I'll go plant out a few more wintersown containers, after lunch.
3:38pm - That went quick. I resowed my tomatoes and covered them with small water bottle cloches. I planted out a few wintersown containers.
The largest seedlings are of a phlox named Laura.
The fancy daff has bloomed.
I'm going to sit a spell and drink some sweet tea. It's what God made, on the eighth day.
