Today’s Plan: Plotted Plants
After last time in the garden, I was left with a farmer’s French tip mani.
Actually, a negative French tip: black where it’s supposed to be white!
But, I had hardly touched the flower beds, so I had to go back out, and brave the heat, once again.
So, Thurs morning, after I dropped DD1 off at work, I came home, and it was only 8 am. The sun was barely touching the side of the house, and the ground was still wet with dew. I thought, “Eh, I might as well weed some. Then, I’ll reward myself with a long nap!!” You know how I looooove my naps!
First I had to just stop a second, and admire my work!! Then face today’s task.
Just in case you have no idea, from personal experience, it’s very!! Hard, that is.
I managed to get this much done, before I almost dropped. I only weeded close to the lamp post, so I could lean on it. I gotta get a gardening stool, or somethin!!
Yes, you can see the tip of PP’s shoe, because I took this after pic, much later! And I believe that pale blur is PPJr’s leg.
By the time I get the whole flower bed weeded, it’ll be next year!!
I know that’s not very positive, but I know myself!!
Besides, I do have a very good excuse for not being out in the sun. Really! I do! The severest side effect of one of my meds is- the reaction of my skin to the sun. It causes damage, not to mention how hideous it looks!
So, sorry, I can’t come outside and help you mow/set up your yard sale/ teach you to ride a bike/ play lawn darts. My pharmacist said No!
However, if I park close enough to the house, I can usually make it to Vanronica, without bursting into flames!!
