Finally Fall Cleanup Ensues!!
Posted on Oct 28, 2018 9:08 PM

On October 24th, I got outside and worked for the first time, since we got Ryker! Hurray! I tied him up on the run, let Jasper out, and started cleanup. The old tree garden was the worst, in back, so it was mostly weeding and redefining and hand trimming the edging Glare , but also removing leftover scapes from the late blooming DL's, and giving them a "haircut". I still have the center area of the tree garden to finish weeding, but I was running on an empty stomach, literally, and thought it best to get inside and eat, and save the center for another day (hopefully today) and then mulch. It takes a bit of a balancing act to work in the center, which isn't good to try when one is shaking from starvation. Blinking Hilarious! Hilarious!

I also hand trimmed and weeded along the garage and hand trimmed and gave the DL's a second haircut in half of the family garden. So there's the Kennel garden DL's to re-trim, the NE tree garden to weed and hand edge, and weeding around other plantings, to finish off the back yard. Then it's on to the same in the front, and then storing the hoses and yard deco, fertilizing the evergreens, and wrapping the tender evergreens, and then I'll be done! Hurray! Hurray!

Ryker was very busy trying to chase Jasper and digging the ground. Jasper and Osciver teased Ryker by standing just beyond where he could reach them, and it drove him absolutely crazy! Sometimes they'd run past him, and he had a ball with them, and Jasper did his usual fly by's with me. Lovey dubby Lovey dubby

All in all, it was a productive day, and a good time was had by all! Smiling

Since Piccolo's sudden passing, on July 23rd, I'm so heartbroken, I have no desire to do anything, not even outside. 😢😢😢

Today I finally got out there early enough to plant my seedlings from Winter sowing, on the pathway side of the kennel garden. Asclepias and Blue Sea Holly. My first success story in growing ANYTHING from seed, and they're living to tell the tale in this "Kodak moment"!! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing ....and the far right Asclepias, in the first photo, actually has buds on it!! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!
