Nothing photo-worthy

It was all about the prep work this weekend so no shiney visuals to share: 1. Beth de-weeded the back yard and planted a few more flowers and plants which she bought on the way home from art class (yes, she has a problem) 2. I cleaned up all the detritus that had collected on the back porch from various adventures in planting, window installation, stucco work, roof repair etc. 3. Beth planted an angel's trumpet which i've been anxious to get as they are so cute and smell GREAT. And, it turns out, the reason they are so fragrant at night is because they're pollinated by bats! How cool is that? 4. Went to the paint store and got all the primer and paint for the outside trim and windows and wood stain for the pergola in the backyard. 5. Went to the lumber yard to price the materials for our fence repairs. And that's it. Boring visually? yes. Exciting in what it foretells? YES!

We had a visually boring weekend also. Sounds like you're ready for a very active weekend next time, though.

"detritus?"...are we talking dirt and weeds and leaves and left over junk from doing yard work?...that stuff we used to put in a pile so we could then light it on fire and have a weeny roast? Yard work has gone high-toned while my back was turned and I was busy making a living at the shop. Yikes!...how will I stay up when I retire and actually have yard time? I don't know yard-speak anymore!
