Pull yourself together........


I have an old decorative planter that consists of a donkey pulling a wagon.  It is an oldie and got broken while in storage in the basement.  I think a cat rubbed against it and knocked it to the concrete floor.  I planted the other oxalis into it yesterday and I will glue the parts back on later.  I didn't want to wait for the glue to dry and then dig the plant.


While cutting flower heads for seed I found these two guys down at the bottom of the growth.  They are genetically not the same as the rest as they were originally brown and single petaled.  I will separate them so that I can plant them again in the spring in a special spot.



Minnesota birch tree that will drop the rest of the leaves by the end of the week.  I need to mow leaves already even tough my trees are not complete bare.

Vocal music and pe substitute today.  I start off with a study hall so it is going fine so far.

Thanks for stopping by.......

Vocal music and PE. I'd like the music if you have a cooperative class, not so much so if they are just there for an arts credit.

Don't like study hall first thing, then it is gone for the day.

No call today at all, kind of surprised since I taught five days last week and four the week before. Oh well, good opportunity to tidy up some of my clients' gardens.

I've always admired those type planters. Glad you can glue this one back together. Your birch tree sure is pretty. I need to get out today and take some pics as rain is coming tomorrow. Our birch, maple and pine are dropping leaves/pinestraw fast now. Hope the rest of your day goes smoothly.

Would you please post a picture of the planter after you glue it together? The colors are beautiful. Funny how the value of something is realized with the heartfor other reasons than its outer condition or appearance.

My aunt has one of those donkey planters. I hope yours goes back together nicely.

I have posted in the past the donkey planter but I will just glue it together and show it to you as I don't want to go digging for it right now.
