Good evening everyone ~ This morning I took some photos of our overgrown spaces, and then headed out to work on them. I worked in the secret garden area with the weed wacker, the tree saw and the pole cutter. It looks better but there is still more that needs doing.
I also did a load of laundry, got it hung on the lines to dry and what does it do before too much time goes by, rains. So the laundry has been super rinsed more than once and will get even more rinsing from the way it looks outside.
It was 84 and felt like it was 100 and I was sweating buckets, drinking my Gatorade as I worked. If the weather co-operates, I’ll be back out there again tomorrow morning working another area. Doing it in stages gets it done without killing me. I’m thankful we only have 1/4 of an acre. I have wished for acreage, but not anymore, at least not to have to control.
The pathway material in and around the main garden is roll roofing, the cheaper variety and it lasted about 5 years before getting cracked up and now grass is coming up in the paths. It’s not a priority right now to replace it so I’ll just use my weedwacker to take care of the renegades.
This is the path on the west side of the garden. I can hardly believe how bad this is. Where is the dang path?
Along the front.
This is the front patio looking west to the main garden. Where is the path? The patio and concrete benches need pressure cleaning.
This is the path off the patio.
Another smaller path just in front of the little fencing almost gone.
This is the front path, sidewalk and street to the left.
Here is my shed’s garden. I did weedwack on the left side this morning, so that the rock border now shows up. I just need to weed the path to St. Francis.
I just went out and took a couple of pictures this evening. Below is the after of the scene above, except that I need to still weed the path.
Here is the secret garden looking east towards my shed. The ‘catrium’ is to the right.
Here we have a blue peavine blossom. I love this color.
Spiderworts blooms all year long and are a favorite.
This is a rain battered spray of tiny orchids.
This is a bloom from my climbing Maman Cochet.
This is Louis Philippe against the bark of the Norfolk pine tree.
Here are some shots of the sky this evening. Rain heavy clouds.
Thank you all for your kind comments about my watercolors.
Remember that we all have talents. They are gifts from our Creator. Go with your creative flow, feel free, and enjoy the process. Life is a gift, savor every moment.
That’s it for now. I’m starting to feel ready to get horizontal to read before sleep.
Tomorrow is another day.
