Fun in the Yard Day!

 
After I finish distracting myself on the computer, I'm heading back outside. Today, I've decided is a work-in-the yard day.

First on the agenda is to pick up the bougainvillea branches that I pruned this morning and tossed willy-nilly on the walkway, effectively blocking passage to the front door. Next, I shall deadhead a couple of small daisy bushes. Then, I'll go find all the empty pots hidden under bushes and cart them to the backyard.

That done (I figure an hour), I'll re-pot the tiny evergreen Christmas tree into a larger pot. We bought it last month. Now is the time to purchase potted Christmas trees for cheap. They may be on the dry end, but with patience and sweet coaxing, they may be smiling happily by the yuletide. So I think.

I also want to prep our 1960s wheelbarrow (which belonged to the Daddy) into a planter for succulents. That will mean playing with the drill, bzzzz, bzzzz, searching for small to medium size rocks in the yard, and seeing what succulents would like a new home. Whooo-hooo! This will be the fun project of the day. 

Yup.  Here I go.

  1. Sounds like you've got it all planned. You'll have to tell us how much you actually get done (or if you get more done :).

  3. I bet you'll have fun with that drill, wontcha? Such energy, I'm pooped and have left a disaster inside the house which is all the more reason for me to go outside. And it' s going to be that nasty 90 degree stuff later so hope to take advantage of the reasonable weather while I can. I'm picturing that wheelbarrow and it looks cool.

    1. I skipped the drill. The wheelbarrow bed looked too nice to put holes it. It's another thing if the holes happen by themselves. We've high 90-degree weather then past few days. Yesterday, I sweated while sitting in the shade.

    1. Thanks, Birgit. I must've got some of the the Mama's and the Daddy's genes when it comes to plants. Yup, the Daddy was a plant whisperer, too.
