She is another step closer. It's Lady Jane here today for your visit. I sure hope I get to work on her today but if I do, it will be late.
I really did get time on my "think tank" yesterday. However, not until after 4 o'clock. It had a major problem and all I can say is thank goodness I have "a man around the house". He doesn't do windows. He doesn't do the weed-eater. He doesn't do flower beds, hedges, or raking. He doesn't do the think tank. But, he does do repairs. And he did. Oh yes, he does grow a garden with wonderful vegetables. It's just another example of "function" (him) and "beauty" (me).
Before starting that trip around and around and around I managed to start cleaning a flower bed. That was while the tank was getting and new what-cha-ma-call-it. Then, I started. Let the thinking begin!
On the first trip around the house, I was thinking, I need to measure these flower beds just to see how many feet of beds I have. I was thinking, you might like to know. Then I got around to the back corner and I was thinking, I sure need to limb up that crepe myrtle and get that dang trash tree out of the bed. The next trip around I was thinking I need to call my friend Sharon who moved down the road and tell her to come for the Rose of Sharon plants. I was thinking it was pretty cool for Sharon (me) to give Sharon (her) and Rose of Sharon. I was thinking what a neat "pass-along" plant.
I was thinking that the high winds we had not long ago did a pretty good job of blowing the leaves away. Then I passed by the big pass-along garden and noticed they were all right there. Whew, look at that red bird nest in the bird feeder. I think I will take a picture of that. I know you would like to see that. I think.
I was thinking, I sure need to refill the other feeders and it's time for the hummingbirds. I think I need to service there station. Oh my gosh, I think I need to get busy with these beds. I can sure tell they were neglected last year when I rediscovered ART. About this time I looked back and thought, "good grief, just like magic, this part of the yard is looking so pretty and almost done".
Then I passed the patios and thought I need to give all that furniture and new coat of spray paint. I think I will put that on my list. Oh, look at the Klimt garden. The benches need a good wipe down and another coat of polyurethane. I try to do that each year; however, I think I missed last year.....ART.
Well I have run out of time for today but as you can see, I get a lot of thinking done.
