I decided I needed to weed my porch. Have you ever heard of someone doing that?
Please bear in mind I rarely use any thing I have to buy. I have lots of rocks and logs so I made my back porch outta those. Hubby brought me a huge rock last year (he just loves making me happy). Now it is where he brushes the dogs and we use it for many things including a table. So tools ready...set...go.
I had a tiny helper who posed for the camera. He/she is only as big as a thumb nail. Glad to see them coming back. I also terrified a REAL Ladybug and a Skink. They did not hang around for a photo session.
You can track me anywhere with my DP can and a vacant pair of shoes. If you find those two things I won't be far away.
Lizzy enjoyed the cool spots I was digging. I recycle dog food sacks and lay them under stone to prevent grass invasion. Between the large rocks I place gravel.
It was a long hot morning. I had to stop and help get the beef in the freezer (59 per cent of live weight). Full to the rim! That feels good.
Back outside to finish. Hot, tired, thirsty, sweaty, dirty and more but I continued. I kinda like to finish something once I get it started. I'm a tad bull headed like that.
Please remember the back door is usually the worst. Ki-Anne doesn't care. This is before
and after. One job done for another year! It was in the shade when I began but not for long. Too hot to work this hard.
Will my next job be the second fig
or the poor fern bed?
Depends on which one is shadier.
