Got all the mowing done yesterday, yay!
Everything edged, yay!
Built a new flower bed, yay!
Cleared more in a new spot, yay!
Garden is growing well, yay!
Updates on those things later.
The flowers planted last weekend were still looking great. This is the Mexican heather and marigolds, actually putting on blooms...
...and here is the other end, red and purple salvia, pincushion flower and more Mexican heather and marigolds, they were all doing great as well. Best part of all, no weeds I had to pull (yet, ha).
With the rains today, they are getting a good soaking and should be good until next weekend.
What's this? I was clearing an area under some trees and I found this stump! It's under some vines that I didn't get to yet, but it's a nice size and is from an old mesquite tree. I think it's still "in the ground" but not sure. I remember seeing some things about using old stumps as planters or tables, etc. It's a bit low to the ground but hey, once it's cleared off, I'll see what potential it has. Adirondack chairs around it perhaps?
Now I have something new to
obsess over think about.
We harvested the first rosemary for this season. We always let it grow over Fall and Winter and so I pruned some back and we brought it back for dinner...
Oven roasted potatoes tossed in olive oil with rosemary, salt and pepper.
Steak and rosemary potatoes, a great weekend meal.
Oh, and a glass or
two three of wine.
Today the storms are all around, though it's been pretty good in town nothing heavy or dangerous 2nd Family say it's been about 3/4" rain out there so far, some dark scary skies but nothing severe. That's not to say there hasn't been, there was a storm that went over the farm early this morning and then dropped a funnel cloud and possible tornado about 20 minutes later. Still heavy storms to come this afternoon, or so they say. Now if it HADN'T rained or stormed at the farm, I'd be ticked off at the weather forecasters, but since it's rained out there, I'm ok with saying it was best that we didn't venture out today.
Besides, now I'm making plans for more flowerbeds along the front and side of the house. I'm on a mission, ha.
