I made my escape this morning and hit the grocery store while my courage was high. I bought a package of matzah the size of a small pickup truck. For some mysterious reason, the package of five boxes of matzah costs the same as one box individually.
I know my brother is yelling through the series of tubes… “Loss leader, Dill Weed!”
Still my hens and chickens… five one pound boxes of matzah is a lotta matzah.
Unfortunately, I got home with plenty of time left over for there to be no excuses in facing some of my garden work….
I decided to start here:
I worked my weeding magic and now it looks like this:
Yeah, I know, I cheated by ‘planting’ containers that were already blooming away. Whatever, I’m a big cheater from way back.
I planted three of those white containers several weeks ago and they are really doing mighty fine if I do say so myself. Here’s a nice shot of a particularly happy poppy.
Too bad the rest of the yard is so chaotic. The pear tree is still dropping blossoms like snow all over the patio and they all end up in my living room from dog foot traffic. I’m not cleaning off the patio until the snow storm is over. I’ve done it twice already and it’s a complete waste of time.
Anyway. Progress was made. That’s all I can say.
