Sunny but Chilly - Garden Update

Had a productive day yesterday, except for the hour or so I was stuck in traffic in an attempt to obtain a rain barrel for $30! I never got there because it would have taken me another 45 minutes to get there and with the cost of gas, I think it might be cheaper to just buy the darn thing and have it shipped...

Oh well.

  • Worked until 3 (I got the darn Verizon wireless modem to work, hooray).
  • I did plant the second (different variety) hydrangea and gave it a good soak afterwards. I am eager to see if it blooms blue or is very exciting indeed.
  • Made some headway on the tomato. No pics yet...not enough progress to warrant them.
  • Gave Gracie a bath
  • Mowed the lawn
  • Sprayed the lawn with Weed and Feed
  • Pulled up a number of the spectacular dandelion crop I've been cultivating (no, not on purpose).
Poor Lehu, a lot of driving yesterday. She got home around 8 pm! Long day.

Today, I am torn between a graduation party for the college grad niece and a softball game with people (fun people) from work.

  1. Wow. You are super productive! I...ate a waffle and went to the grocery store. :)

  2. I ADORE hydrangea. We have some upstate that my grandma planted in the 1940s, still going strong. I love the way it goes through stages in its blooming, each one more beautiful than the last. I still have a bunch, dried from last autumn. Even that's lovely.

  3. I need to get out into the yarn and get some work done.

  4. I'm with Sarah! Can't wait to see the pics of the sweater.....and what did you do? Softball or the party?
