Charmion's weather! Lovely here also.

Was hoping to go to Beaver, today to Friday, but cannot bear to leave the yard work undone. I wanted to get away from sitting here all week, doing nothing but reading, but realized, by the broad light of day, there is work to be done.

The Euonymous finally was well planted this morning and a promise never to purchase any plant larger than a gallon pot! Poor R dug halfway to China!   He had to cut the pot off with a coping saw - seemed a waste. Two buckets of "dahlia potting mix" as we had no peat here and several buckets of water- 2 before and one after. Then R went off to work, at noon, with some metal scrap in the truck! Well done!

I cleared more of that weed preventing Fabric to make room for my plantings. I still have three daylilies and something else to plant and lots of daffie bulbs from the spring pots - they are starting to show life, Need to get them underground! I have a "bulb planter - might work. Also a lavender and something else... And the back deck: house plants, extra pots, garden tools that need to be homed, and boxes of pottery - where to put it???? Very undecided. Can also organize TV/sewing room...

And a book to read... And I do need to rest!

The hibiscus in the BR has promising looking buds! The one and only orchid is getting its 3 weeks of cool nights, in a protected spot on the deck.

I wish I had a Dan here to help out - moving furniture, two person pieces - planting, etc. Viewing possibility of a ramp to make house accessible. R does not think it important; for me it is a matter of principle. Concerned about in-house air quality when windows are closed and the basement stairs are an opening to that air. Air cleaners can only do so much. Miss the clean air of Beaver!
