My blue gate has a trellis area next to it and you can see less weeds now than before yesterday. Time is my biggest enemy as I use to be able to go weed a little each day and it would be done by this time of the year. I will just plug away until I get it done. I planted some snapdragons today and cleared out a large area of creeping charlie.....the curse.
The object for me is to get the most offensive weed growth gone and in another week come back and perfect it. Can you spot the sage plant that survived our winter and is going strong?
I had to get an area cleared for some planting of a roots for a flower that needed to have sand mixed in, so I cleaned the whole area. You can still see a few weeds but you couldn't see the bench before I started. Angel boy is using mental telepathy to make the rest of the weeds die.
It is Friday and we are headed to Osceola to get the yard mowed. No one is to do any remodeling today as we both are physically exhausted. Once the yard is mowed we are going over to the Murray cemetery and plant small starts of this red peony on the graves of my parents and brother and baby sister. It is the red peony that originated at my Grandmother Brooks' home. My mom moved it to the Osceola property, and I moved a lot of it to my home. These small starts I planted last fall to get them in shape to be moved to the cemetery. I am really not into decorating graves as I would rather get peonies and irises going there. It will last forever and the show will be better than plastic flowers.
Have a good Friday and thanks for keeping in touch. I need to catch up a little with all my friends blogs so I will not do the Creative Zone for a few days. I have a lot of good friends out there and I have neglected some of them, so maybe I can be the mad poster for a while.
