Well ... here it is Friday (no rain in sight until Monday) .. I feel like one giant throbbing muscle that is about to SCREAM non-stop.
So against all of my garden instincts (aka obsessions and desires) I have to take today off and crawl (literally) back to bed once hubby gets up .. its just easier that way ? .. I got up at 5:45 because Emma was in full "Wrestle Mania" with Sophie .. knowing how Sophie feels about this issue .. well .. I had to get up and distract Emma with breakfast so Sophie could have a break from her CRAZY little sister.
I potted up most of my seeds (why oh why did I get so many ? January cabin fever in full tilt?) .. I'm giving some away to my neighbor .. we trade and barter every year with something .. this year I gave her my big water pump tub planter, because I switched to a simple black urn for the front step .. I got some VERY cool solar lights from her, that are "up" lights, to highlight trees etc .. I'm sure I got the better deal this year !
I did the Bamboo "U" supports for the vines (Moonflowers).. they look rather naked with no plants showing for a while but in my mind's eye .. they look spectacular : )
Finally got the last special rose in, Zephirine Drouhin .. with lots of support to climb up to the deck railing and show off it's gorgeous flowers and scent. Another in my mind's eye fabulous production ? .. that is one half of the raised bed .. the other half has red and white Cypress Vine which is supposed to draw in those hummingbirds along with the pink/white ivy geranium I have on a hanger above the bed.
We saw a hummer yesterday that thought the copper wind whirler was interesting ?
It is now 8 AM .. time to tidy up .. and soon back to bed .. this is agony .. I so want to play in the garden .. the soul is peppy but the body .. well .. it is SHOT ! haha
Hope all you other gardeners have a great day in your gardens !
