I do not think I can stand the excitement with the forecast for three or four days without rain. LOL!
The sun is shining and Grumpy Gardener has fled the premises. I know you all are glad since you have heard me complaining so much.
Got a hike in today with the daughter and feel much better.
This is the first year that I have grown Brachycome or Swan River Daisies from seed. I am not impressed with the how tiny the blooms are. They came in a assortment of colors and they are not the prettiest colors all but for the blue ones. They are a pretty powder blue so I may save some seeds from the blue to use for container fillers next year.
Echinacea “ Summer Sky” is lovely now. I have it tucked into the Pole Bed with Hot Papaya Echinacea and Apricot Delight Achillea. Maybe I should call it my “ Seventies” Bed instead. LOL! Visions of brown, orange and olive green. Yuck!
The two year old Lily Bed along the Woodland garden is looking fair now although all of the rain has them falling over. In a few years this should be a very pretty bed.
The window box got hung back up Monday and I even got to get the window frame painted before hanging it.
I did have one little mishap when I went to the garage to get the drill……
I stepped on this monster below which I did not see until I started to step down and stepped right into its middle.
The brain registered snake! copperhead! as I stepped on it.
Needless to say this old fat lady can jump pretty high and move fast when the need arises. LOL!
I grabbed the hoe and killed it so this is one that did not get away. No shotgun required this time since the how was closer.
Not a copperhead but I am clueless as to what it kind it is. Milk snake?
I could care less just as long as it is a dead snake.
Did I ever tell you that I HATED SNAKES!!!!!!!
So the misadventures and mishaps of the lady who hates snakes continues. If you missed my posting you can catch up here.
