The sad rose at the end of the bed I worked on yesterday is now trimmed, weeded, and mulched. I use old dog food bags under rocks and roses love them. I trimmed a large enough hole to feed and water the rose if it needs it, otherwise, this will help it take care of itself. I think I could've taken a straighter picture
So it's taken me two mornings,or more, before the heat rolled in to get one half of one side of the house weed free.
This is the relationship of my water garden to the rock patio I did last week. You can see why the water stays ragged...the pets think it's their personal playground and I don't have the heart to stop them. I can watch the dogs chase frogs from the porch or from right beside the water garden on the bench a friend made.
My other project this morning was cleaning this off the old house. Many saplings and a huge grape less vine had taken over, along with vinca. I saved the vinca for another day.
Same spot, finished! I did three sides of the old house where Dad grew up and where I lived at a very young age. Have to trim this all back because there are many repairs to be done. I finished three sides before I had to come in and cool.
The temperature has reached 80 degrees, feels like a cold front.
If you think I didn't do much, here's my pile of proof.
No snakes, no wasps (bothering me), no injuries (a few cuts and scratches that don't count) and I did it all in my handy dandy little rubber shoes...almost as much fun as flip flops. Gosh, I'm tired!
