Have spent a couple of days at the Ponderosa doing the little things that John tends to overlook. For example, he's very good at detailing a car and not so very good at detailing a stove. This morning, before the sun gets around too far, I have some window washing on the west side to accomplish. I really think that I'm going to need to hog tie John to get him out of there. He keeps seeing one more thing and one more thing and, at this rate, there'll always be something more that can be done and it will never end. (The most recent was closing in the porch and putting in all new windows. Ackkkk...enough already!)
You know that you're really not paying attention when people from neighboring countries have to provide you with local news. Pamela asked me if I had felt the earth shake and I replied that three or more trees had been taken down and so, yes, I had. LOL! You know how I love it when a tree goes down over here in the jungle. Anyway, wouldn't you love to see my new view? This has happened quite quickly and one of these photos was just featured the day before yesterday, but I show it again as comparison.
Here are some first and lasts in the garden. I always like to document them. These photos were taken on the last day of spring.
~the first Bolero Lily~
~The Last Phlox~
(I almost missed it!)
~The first Crimson Knock-out Rose~
~The First Pink Knock-out Roses...yes, the chewers have arrived~
~The Last Peony~
~The Morning Glory just beginning to climb~
~Hoping that one day it'll look spectacular!~
Okay, I've pestered you long enough. Off for breakfast, which will include the first watermelon...now that is another good thing about summer.
