I finally got out .. albeit in my pajamas (shudder )yesterday afternoon to snap a few pictures of a garden finally coming out of the deep freeze.
You have to keep in mind NO work has been done on it yet .. so it is a situation of no make-up ... no hair done .. and no clothes to gussy up the gal .. if you are brave enough to quickly scroll down from that catastrophe you can see some neat things I found to work and play in the garden.
Yes .. this was once a gorgeous Boston fern that graced my front entrance.
I think it might have been key in scaring raccoons away ?
It all looks rather sad and DEAD and surprisingly dry too .. rain is forecasted for tonight though.
Fingers crossed !
Dry Stream bed as dry as you can get .. note to self, must turn rain barrel right side up or it will be rather useless !!
Hosta Ally, where Guacamole rained supreme with its huge size and beauty .. a bit hard to believe now right ?
OK .. so now for some signs of life ... as tiny as they may be ... still thrilling ... sad aren't I ???
Now for some fun bits ...
The bamboo butterfly house really caught my interest .. I already have a lady bug house and I wondered about a protected resting place for butterflies ..
The copper wire "worms" ... well they are
I have just enough to experiment to see if this does work ... the slug syrup (ugh) when in contact with the copper makes it rather uncomfortable for said slug .. might even do the "twist" when it all comes about ... should be on YouTube ? haha must look that up just in case ?
Well .. it is time to put all the mental cleaning up of the garden into practice ... must get out there and do the real thing ... I expect a load of moaning and groaning before, during and after .. but it might just be well earned this time ! Phew !!
