I passed by these little plants yesterday...hanging in the garage. It looks like some little creature has taken up residence there among the succulents. The soil is disturbed...I hope who ever it was didn't burrow down and start eating the roots. These hearty plants don't have much of a root system, however. You can pretty much break one off and just plop it into the ground and it will take root. If you remember, this is a hanging basket. I experimented with it last summer, and it was so successful that I may try another this summer. Can you tell I'm tired of snow and looking forward to the growing season?I have a strawberry jar that needs redoing and some plants for my other succulent planter are spending the winter downstairs.
I'm going to get ready for gardening starting right now. I have my exercise video ready and Joe has the Dr's. OK to go to the pool. So, this next week we start with water walking again. It will feel so good to get going and do some exercising...after being sloth like all winter. We'll swim on Mon, Wed, and Fri. Then Joe can go to therapy on Tues. and Thurs.
Still fussing with swimsuits. Men have it so easy...just put on a pair of swim trunks and jump in. We women have to find a suit that fits all our parts and still looks good. If you ask a man, "How does this one look?" Most likely he'll say, "Fine." You say..." Is this too tight?" He'll say, "Aren't swimsuits supposed to be tight?" So big help that he is...why didn't we put a three way mirror in the closet?
This morning I saw a tiny bird in the corner of our hanging shelf feeder. He was puffed up and shivering. I think that he was dying. I watched for quite a while and he stayed there. Such a sad little thing. A couple of hours later he was gone. I'll never know what happened. This harsh winter has been so hard on wildlife. I can hardly eat a meal and look out at the empty feeder on the deck. Little birds still come there...even if we fill the one in the front of the house...they like the back one better. Not safe for me to go out there...so they will have to find the front feeders.
Well, gotta go. Today is Joe's son Dan's birthday. He and Melody are coming out for dinner tomorrow. I made the pasta sauce this morning....we'll have all the fixins along with birthday cake.
So, we've gone from planters to birthday cake. A lot of things went through my head as I sat and wrote this post.
See you tomorrow,
