I know I complained about spring taking its own sweet time about getting here, but she has surely arrived. I can tell by the blisters on my hand, the soreness in my back, a never-ending list of outside chores, 52 bags of leaves, and beautiful buds and blooms.
Make sure to note those two red tulips because they are the only two I have. Why the chipmunks and squirrels missed those two I don’t know.
After raking and bagging that many leaves, my thoughts have turned to a leaf blower that also vacuums and mulches. Has anyone bought one of these? Do they work?
It’s a good thing I finished that painting project before I started on the outdoor list. As part of that, I wanted to try having some of my photos from South Carolina printed onto canvas. So, I ordered two 11×14 prints and three 8×10 prints. I’m pretty happy with the results.
Besides work at home, I’ve also been really busy getting ready for the MG plant sale. These plants will be loaded into my truck on Saturday and hopefully sold on Sunday. The plants that don’t sell are used in some of our projects, donated to town beautification projects, and given to a neighboring town for their library plant sale.
Once they are out of the yard, I can get my stock tank beds ready for veggies and fruits. I’m longing for fresh lettuce and that first tomato sandwich.
Is gardening keeping you busy as we hit the middle of May or are you planning a Memorial Day getaway?
