Puttering Around The Yard
Lou continued with her cleanup project.
Dawn and I were on weekend duty though. Dawn went over to a book sale at the friends of the library and came home with a couple of bags of books and tapes. She loves visiting that book sale.
I puttered around the yard. I pulled weeds from a flower bed and tied back some wisteria fronds so they would grow onto the arbor instead of into the air. I also sorted dirt, one of my favorite jobs. I hate to throw away used potting soil so I remove the old dead plant material and throw the soil into the flower beds. We have heavy clay soil here so the potting soil helps. I also potted a few jade plants that had sprung up in a flowerbed. They may return when they're bigger. It's hard to tell them from weeds when they are small. Wait, maybe I just potted weeds?
