The past two days have involved moving houseplants outside – all the saucers were washed and put away till next fall. Both “greenhouse areas” in the east and south parts of the house were then cleaned, too.
This was as far as I had gotten a few days ago.
Here it is today after everything was moved. Rick made me a sturdy gripping stool to use when stepping off the ramp.
So many plants! They’ve become almost like pets because I’ve had them for so many years. I will rely on Mother Nature and my rain barrel to keep them watered now.
Ivy visited this afternoon – we rested in the porch and enjoyed the birds – lots of them. I even had a scarlet tanager at my feeder and I have never seen one in my whole life! It was thrilling! Along with two different kinds of orioles, a rose breasted grosbeak, a pair of mourning doves and a single dove, two different kinds of woodpeckers and all the regular blue jays, red winged blackbirds, catbirds, sparrows and warblers. I can’t wait to see them again tomorrow!
Awhile back a reader wanted me to ask what types of domestic sewing machines do you use for quilting? I think she’s in the market for a machine and would like your opinions.
Saturday night and all’s well on the farm!
