productive day! lots of much needed yardwork done- pots planted, tomatoes finally in the ground, some beds thinned & dead stuff cut out of various plants, silver lace vine severely chopped back. for the first of many times this year.
this is the front yard. it doesn't take a lot of work but a few times per year, but i really do need to divide & transplant this fall.....
this western tanager came to visit.
some sort of centanaurea
and the roses, which despite the wet are doing well, other than a few spots on the leaves & some aphids. i grow older varieties which require lots less fuss. b/c maintenance is not something i do well.
my feet hurt & i am tired, but glad to have gotten so much done. art & roses is tomorrow- i also got photos framed this evening, up early tomorrow to chop veggies for the hummus & make margaritas for kristy & i to sip.... and to get the dogs out. looking forward to a fun day!
