OK ... what is with me or what is with my favorite compost ?
Why can't we make each other happy on our first encounter of the season .. it should be love at first sight or touch , right ? Spring is supposed to do that for us right ?
Nope ... here I am again with 12 bags of .. hum ? .... overly moist ? worm casting compost.
The tiny perk being it is on sale ... but some how that doesn't cut it with lugging heavy wettish ? bags.
Thankfully Garden PA is on the spot helping me out ... fixing the flat tire on my poor wheel barrow.
Laying said overly moist bags out in this FREAKISHLY HOT weather we are having.
It went up to 22 degrees Sunday and I turned on our air unit to combat my .. hum ? overheated state.
Bags getting a sun tan ?
A new BEE friendly device we, I (being) the foreman and Garden PA (being) the "doer", installed it for me.
Two nails and presto! but hey installed sounds better , right ?
"Solitary Pollen Bee Nest" .. from Lee Valley .. with a chart and tracking info to up load on Canadian site that is recording all the information they can gather to find out what is truly happening to these bees.
Mean while ... garden clean up is stalled due to a few appointments etc ... life goes on even though my garden brain is humming along like a steam engine ... hard to sleep at night when you keep thinking of all the chores you have to do .. argh !
I did get some done .. the front and part of the ally way ... but with loads more to do, it keeps eating at me until I get it done and by the time I do get it done, I will have had it done a hundred times in my imagination ... no wonder I am exhausted ???
In other news Garden PA put up the rain barrel and a little higher for me so I don't become the Hunchback of CanadianGardenJoy garden when filling my water can .. phew !
My plan of surrounding Queen of the Night tulips with Antoinette seems to be working which is a
MIRACLE !!! ... as long as they can actually flower I will be over the moon, go tulips !!
So now for more gratuitous flower pictures of the hellebore nature, since most, OK .. just about all my bulbs are not at the flowering stage as so many of you have "been there done that"
We Canadians in south eastern Ontario are trying to catch up !
OK .. one more picture is of a smiler ... for me ... because it is Kent Beauty oregano coming back after a second winter and that is special since it is such a picky, sensitive plant .. zone 6 !
I must have plunked it in just the right spot !
