I started working in the barn at 9:30 am and two hours later the dogs left me and went to the house! I took their hint and went to the house with them. If I could just learn to go half speed with all the chores, my old creaky body would so appreciate it. Haha!
Here is Karla T.’s Bullseye that wouldn’t load yesterday.
Looks at that special border and notice how much she had to plan to match 4 connector squares. Super job, Karla!
And for everybody who wondered why I don’t just put up nesting boxes for the hens to lay their eggs in –
I have two of these – do you see any hens in the nests? The nests are clean and very convenient but they’d rather make life hard for me and lay their eggs elsewhere.
Do you realize it’s May 2 and time to send me the titles of any good books you’ve read recently? I’ll add my good book to the list – All Our Lies by Sue Watson. It’s so fun to finally read a good one after several “slow” reads. This was masterfully written and the angst built up in my head so much that I woke up at 4 am and read until I finished it.
I finished cleaning up the hydrangeas in front of the quilt shop.
I always put the fence up to keep the hydrangeas from falling flat after a windstorm or rainstorm or just because the blooms get so big and heavy they want to topple over. I planted several experimental pots of hydrangeas and we’ll see which ones are successful, if any.
The books have been sent to the three winners. It was a very successful post and we’ll do another one in a couple weeks.
I transplanted hostas last fall and it’s rewarding to see that they survived the brutal winter.
I put these cinder blocks on the west side of the garage where it’s very sunny and hot. I’m going to plant sedum in the holes in the blocks.
Every time I go to the basement to feed the cats, get meat out of the freezer, or clean litter boxes, I grab a plant in each hand as I go up the stairs because soon they’re all going outside. See how much work I’ve saved myself? No going up and down, up and down on the day I decide to move them all.
I’m hoping to buy some geraniums this weekend if I can get to a greenhouse. Hobo Dinners for supper tonight! Don’t forget your book titles!
