It's time to relax and enjoy the garden...Right!
Normally, I try to show y'all pretty photos around the yard, but this morning was reality check time.
Our old bench saw better days several years ago. We really need to break it down and be done with it, but it sits w-a-y back behind the shed, so it's out of sight and out of mind. Hubby keeps saying he's going to repair it, but I'm not holding my breath.
See the crane thing? They're building more houses behind us. At least we have big trees to block the view.
When I was back there, I caught a glimpse of two of our ferals. They had just had breakfast. Newbie is grooming himself, and Georgie is....oh, sorry Georgie. Didn't mean to catch you at an awkward moment.
Back near the house where the hose is, I found a little frog, or is it a toad?
I gave the old gray fox a good scrubbing. I still have to put him back in the garden, but he's concrete and h-e-a-v-y. Now, where do I want to put him?
Gotta add that to Hubby's honey dew list.
Something weird appeared overnight in the veggie garden...
...which is running over with weeds. The tomato plants are over five feet tall, so we've added extra stakes. Maybe I should pinch them back. Hmmm...gotta Google that.
I must admit, the squash plants are looking pretty good, now that we're having warmer weather and a LOT of rain. I even saw two baby squash.
This is on the north side of the house, and the ivy and Virginia creeper have taken over. At some point, Hubby will have to get in there and chop it back, or I'll call the landscape guys.
It's one of those areas that requires boots...and someone who isn't afraid of critters...and it isn't me. :)
Here's one last pic.
I'd been looking for some green and white Caladiums, and finally found a pot at the grocery store the other day.
They were jam-packed in the pot, so I re-potted them in a big black wash pot, and added them to the pine island. I haven't decided if I'll put them in the ground, or just leave them in the pot, til time to take them up in the Fall.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing the reality of my yard and garden.
If the rain will stop for a few days, I may finish some much needed chores.
Have a great weekend,
