Busy, busy week
This past week was mainly sunny after days and days of rain. Earlier in the week I had to haul all the pots and ornamental stuff out of the greenhouse as I had someone coming on Saturday to put new plastic on it. Then I spent two days weeding a large flower bed in the front and put compost around the plants. Roger built me four eight foot high teepees for Scarlet Runner Beans and placed them in various sunny spots around the property. I look around and have so many flower gardens that it all seems an overwhelming task as I didn't cut back a lot of the plants last fall and they now have to be cleaned up and weeded. Some plants I have to move around as well as they are starting to over run each other. I took two buckets of sunflower seed hulls from under the platform feeder and there is probably another bucketful there. Don't know what to do about it, I want to keep the feeder as the crows enjoy treats from it and the Evening grosbeaks come for the seeds. Friday we went to the nearest large town, an hours drive away as Roger had a dental appointment, teeth cleaning. When he had finished with the dentist I asked him how much it cost and he said as he only has half his teeth left it only cost half as much. On the way home we saw a bald eagle in a tree by the side of the road, unfortunatly I did'nt have my camera with me. Yesterday the guy came and put the plastic on the greenhouse, between helping him from time to time and cleaning up around the property I was ready for bed very early last night. I told the guy that I would do the two doors myself so will get at that today. Got to go and finish the laundry now, then out I go.
