After midnight again, and here I am. We got a lot accomplished today, so I am feeling rather optimistic about tomorrow. The rain arrived around 5AM and we were very lucky because we only got a little over an inch of rain, not much wind, and no hail. Thank goodness!
Our first clematis growing on the 'Egress' trellis; I don't have the name handy, but it is lovely and very floriferous.
We were inspired to grow clematis by our friend who has an absolutely breath-taking garden.
This morning I worked on raking the yard and putting things away while I waited for the garden to dry up enough to work in. Around noon, I went out to work on edging the backyard beds which look much nicer now.
Joel came home with a load of pallets for firewood and then mowed the lawn and after he was done with that he helped Carl clean up in front of the shop. Carl and I worked on the beds behind the garage and up against the chicken coop--we finished those areas and then headed for the formal garden.
Ann came with her daughter and we had a mini-photo shoot of her beautiful new dress that they whipped up he night before. Ann took her daughter home and came back later on alone; we worked on mulching right up until 10PM again.
We ate supper, and I grabbed Teddy dog and gave him a bath. I also mixed up a double batch of chocolate chip cookies (just in case the tour group is hungry) and will bake them sometime tomorrow.
I want to get up early tomorrow and see if we can put more of a polish on this yard. Wish us luck.
