Tuesday This and That

Hi, everyone. I hope all of you are safe and managing through the storms that are across the country.
We're under a severe storm warning, so I'm just waiting and blogging. :)
Here's what's happened around our house in the last couple of days.


This morning, a turtle found it's way to the area at the bottom of our deck steps. I can't imagine how it got there, because it would have had to navigate several lower steps to get to this part of the yard. It disappeared a few minutes after I took the pic. 


I put a pot of sedum Autumn Joy cuttings on the entry chest, and..


...cuttings of Basil, and a branch from one of the hydrangeas on the kitchen hutch. I found the hydrangea branch broken off, so I'll see if it roots.


Baby figs are appearing on the fig tree. 


Two trips to the garden center and thirty bags of mulch later...


...the front yard is mulched. Yay!


I put a little vase of gardenias on the secretary. Love the fragrance...so much for my exciting life. :)

Well, it's getting really dark outside. 
Guess I'd better check on things before the storm hits. 
Take care everyone and stay safe.
