A Good Day Gardening
Yesterday was a beautiful spring day here in North Texas. It was about 80 degrees with no wind - just perfect for gardening! I had lots of things on my to-do list and I got most of them done before dark.
Here's a shot of Casa Allen from across the street. Pardon the shadows - it was about 8:00 this morning and the sun was very strong in the east.
I know it's kind of hard to see everything, but we've worked really hard over the last couple of years to put in landscaping.
This is an old iron washpot that we bought off our next-door neighbor last year. It's been sitting in the flower bed waiting to be planted - but Russ needed to drill some drain holes in it first. Got the holes done and then planted with 2 clematis vines (one spring-flowering, the other fall-flowering) and herbs.
This was an idea stolen from my good friend Beckye's yard. There's a piece of rebar with a base and all the buckets (with appropriate holes drilled in them) are slipped onto the bar. And yes, there are 2 minnow buckets included. I've been collecting all this stuff for a couple of years. By the time I got to this project, the rest of the family was sitting in the shade watching. That's okay. I wanted to get it done and now it is. Again, I apologize for the shadow, but it faces early morning sun.
I suppose I should get to work on my store's newletter....yuk. But it's got to be done...
