Did you ever wake up in the morning with a jolt and have the feeling you forgot something important but you can't remember what it was? That was me this morning. I woke up and racked my feeble brain for what it could be that was bugging me and then I remembered....the greenhouse! I ran to the back door to look out and---
|Teddy Dog and the green house in the snow this morning.|
I grabbed the camera and went outside (forgot my boots...drat) to take some pictures of the Morning After the Storm.
|The Point Rocks in Quarry Pond|
|Wouldn't be fun to stand under them when these plops fall.|
|No place to sit on the park benches, either.|
Ashley came out and looked at the New White Stuff and then ever so cautiously stepped into the snow.
On second thought, she decided to go back in.
Ashley changed her mind when Goldie decided it was time to make a Flight Plan.
Goldie would rather Fly the Friendly Skies.
Ashley just kept walking. No, she's not a one-legged chicken, she just kept falling through the snow.
The two of them finally found a patch of mud the snow hadn't covered. (And some grasses Pyromaniac Karen hadn't lit on fire yet. Dang grass is just too close to the gazebo for a blaze.) I did burn off the ornamental grasses out by our mailbox yesterday morning before it snowed and was amazed at the intensity of the fire, I think I may have melted our plastic paper box a little. Oooops.
The driveway needed snowblowing, but I didn't bother. The lightshade/flowerpots on the side of the driveway look like Ice Cream Sundaes. (Can you tell I'm trying to watch what I eat? Everything looks like food.)
I spent the morning in the greenhouse and finished planting about 120 castor bean seeds I'd harvested from the blue castor beans from last summer. What am I going to do with 120 Castor bean plants if they all germinate? I have no idea. I also planted the last of the Avalanche petunias that came in the mail on Tuesday. Now I'm all done planting. It was really warm in the greenhouse today. I'm glad Carl and Joel put the shade cloth back up for tomorrow, without the shade cloth and the ventilation the greenhouse would really bake.
Pardon the mess, Plants Under Construction.
In the far right corner sits the lamp back on the stand for soldering. Carl got a good start putting in the reinforcing wires in the inside and
started adding a heavy copper wire to the bottom edge for strength. One of us still has to finish soldering the inside. The greenhouse is a great place to work as its warm and the natural light is easy on the eyes.
One of these days we'll get back to the projects that need work:
|There's a Project now! The Stone Thing needs work.|
But first the snow has to melt.
