What a beautiful, lazy Sunday morning. After getting up at 5:30 to let Annie out for a quick go, I crawled back under the covers for another few hours of dreamy–weird dreamy–dozing. When I could no longer bear the crazy slumber, I pulled enough clothes on to go out to the backyard, but not before grinding a few coffee beans and setting them to brew.
Not being a “churchy” person, I then began my leisurely Easter morning puttering, repotting a couple of under-tended plants, squeezing in a few more wax bean and okra seeds in the already jungle-like garden, tying up the drooping passion flower stems to steady pergula posts, weeding out any ever-present chickweed and elm sprouts that I could reach, then finally giving everything a good dose of watering before the sun’s cheery Sunday rays would obliterate the remaining protective shadows.
Now it’s time for a good shower and then off to see if I can find a few groceries. I doubt much will be open out here in conservative suburbialandia. I don’t need to buy much, just wasn’t in the mood to do the shopping yesterday. I will have to remember not to take the street out of the sub-division that enters onto the road that passes the Catholic church. They’ll be swarming into that place like those ants that were trying to make a new hill next to the patio. Ortho took care of that.
I hope you will enjoy this visual taste of my yard and garden.
