SRS: Being a scientist, R read and re-read the explicit directions that, amazingly, came attached to the euonymous. Then, lifting the monster into the hole, found it too deep, lifted it back out and added good stuff to bring it up to ground level, with an inch of saucer to help hold water, as directed. What a project! Even R could barely lift the beast. Then - it does not look that big. Rather a disappointment after all that. But it is supposed to get 3 feet tall and wide; will help hide the concrete foundation of the entrance to addition. Or, draw attention to it.

Wonderful that the old tree is getting new life!

R dashed off this am without BF so I made a batch of muffins with new baking powder. They did not rise any better than the last ones but - it was the scones that were a disappointment, not the muffins. These look good. And I found out that the oven turned itself off and announced "Fin" at the end of the entered cooking time. It did not beep loudly enough to be heard. I am a bit buffaloed by a stove that talks back - in French. They did get browner than the last batch. I'll take a couple with me, to the walk this am - in the Ile. Hope someone comes this week but I can still have a walk by the Rivers. Cool morning.
