The Motivation Continues

It was something I wanted to do last fall, but I got busy doing some painting inside and outside. Then spring rolled around but it was always wet and never really hot enough to pull out the pressure washer and clean the patio deck. Wednesday was the perfect day for that. Temperatures never got into the 80s, a slight wind from the NNE at 17 mph and bright sunshine to help dry things out.

More Discussion About Everything

For the forth time I will try to grow another one. Originally I brought one with me in that pot from Arizona. That one never survived the winter inside. Lowes stocks them on a regular basis so I bought a couple more over the past 27 months. They have all died different ways. Did I give this one too much water? Or is there something in the soil that is killing them?

A Lot Going On

After a second day in a row of working outside in flowerbeds and the "rock patio", I am sitting here with 20oz of ice cold water in front of me, a bunch of photos and some thoughts running around my head. I guess my "water break" has turned into calling it a day, and instead of going to another thing on the "to do" list, I will blog instead. Grab something to drink and prepare to read, a lot of news in this blog post. Some would call it rambling or in some cases ... total craziness.

Is Summer Over ??


I was going to write just a paragraph and list all the photos of the hounds but there were too many 'topics' just to do that. Now I see after loading all the photos into the blog at once like I always do, they are in reverse order than what I wanted. So, here we go with a little commentary below the photos.
