Busy, busy, busy.
Did I mention I was busy?
I’m having fun in the garden in between appointments, exercise and carpool duties. Here are a couple of snapshots as I go about my day.
There are two steps leading from our back door to the garden patio. They form an L shape, resting against the house and leading to the garden. The steps currently house a potted geranium, my new watering can and a ceramic bowl of water for the cats. I’m energized by all that color. The small fountain that the cats like to drink from is off-limits so that the birds can have a swim unmolested. The fountain is now surrounded by a small wire fence.
Staked inside the geranium are a pair of gardening tools, a gift from Talia and Belinda. They spotted them at a cat show and thought of me. Sweet, eh?
That small bowl of red potatoes grew in the center of my sheet mulch compost project. I’m looking forward to steaming them later this week. Red potatoes are one of my favorites.
Here is a closeup of my garden fork and spade. Aren’t they cute?
And I’m off…
I hope you’re living life in the slow lane. I’ll catch up soon.
