The snowball bush is greening up and if the buds are any indication, we will have lots of big white balls on the bush. You can see the rocks I have added to make a bed and the Creeping Jenny, which is a chartreuse green.
These are three Na king cherry bushes which stand above my little garden. I took two closer photos and can you imagine each blossom a tiny cherry.
When a volunteer was dividing plants which were too thick at the Presbyterian Hillsboro Road Church, I was given one of these bushes and I have no idea what it is called. Maybe someone out in blog land does.
We have lots of vinca around the yard and I love the pretty little purple blooms.
These are tiny flowers from bulbs and were here when I arrived on the hill, I have moved them to several places and they are doing well but again I have no idea what their names happen to be.
The Hawthorne bush is in full bloom. This is a close up of the pretty red flowers. The bush was only a couple of sprigs when Mr. Frank brought it up on the hill and now it is taller than I(over five feet).
Today has been a wonderful day. It is the third day I have been able to take a step without pain. I have been out and about the yard doing this and that. I read about a home made weed killer so I tried it around my flower beds. It is 2 Tbsp of rubbing alcohol mixed with 2 cups of water. Put in a spray bottle and go after those weeds. I hope it works and will let you know how it appears.
I also tried to stop the leak in our concrete bird bath out front. I hope I fixed the beggar. The blue birds love to land in the dogwood tree and then come down and bathe in that bird bath.
I would lose myself and then find myself outside. I put up the umbrella on the picnic table and then sat and enjoyed the breeze.
Some how or other I managed to stay outside for a good six hours. Where does the time go when you are enjoying working outdoors. All task were done at a leisurely pace and then I sat on one of the benches out front while Puppy ate his lunch and we chatted about life in general.
Now we will not break a record where the weather is concerned, the record for this date is 86 degrees but we are to make the low eighties.
The kitty justice is if this is a day for fools then lets have a few more like this one.
