What I did today

I painted a ladder first white and then a little blue, I soaked Morning Glory seeds for planting, I dug out the peach tree that died because of rabbits eating all the bark off the trunk.  I forgot to water the seedlings which I'm going to do right now.  It's time to put the inside plants outside.  I'm mourning the loss of last fall.  I wonder how long it takes to get over that or if I'm just milking it for an excuse. 
Meet me in St. Louie, Louie, meet me at the fair
Don't tell me the lights are shining any place but there
We will dance the hootchie cootsie, I will be your tootsie wootsie.
If you meet me at St. Louie, louie, meet me at the fair.
...just felt like bursting into song.  LOL

 Last October I bought six packs of Daffodil bulbs, 15 to a pack to plant in the yard.  I found them in the garage today all moldy and mushy.  Better to take a day at a time than to plan for the future.
I'm going to wait until this evening and then my plan is to paint the ladder and if I get that done I'm going to soak the Morning Glory seeds and plant them tomorrow.

Hot and humid, broke a heat record here in town

  Went out for lunch with Hali and Dan to Perkins.  Hali has always asked me if she could play that machine with the stuffed animals in it so today I said sure and gave her the two quarters.  She did it all by herself and actually got a Backyardagains, we were all so surprised and happy.  She just grabbed it with the hook and threw it down the shoot and got it.  I was so surprised I didn't even think to take a picture.  I forgot what it's name is but it's the blue one, or maybe it's purple.  She took it with her when she went back to her Dad's house.

Today I cleaned up the garage a little more, planted three tomato plants, two rose bushes and two Bridal Wreaths and watered them.  I also took out and set up the hoses and a few more odds and ends.  I get tired so fast but maybe if I do some each day I'll gain strength like the old days.  Was a most beautiful day today, sunny and hot.  All my Dogwoods are in full bloom and I sat out and enjoyed them for a while.

May Gardening

Well once again I brought my knockout roses back in the house. Snow is predicted for tonight, up to three inches. They look so pretty on the kitchen table and smell so lovely. I also planted a lot of seeds today. Spinach, Lettuce, Peas, Beans, Sunflowers, Marigolds, and Forget Me Nots. I have other seeds too but things like Morning Glories I like to plant directly in the yard. I've had my cookies and milk so now off to bed LOL. I think it's the cold that's making me tired tonight.
This year, unexpectedly, I have grown old. Although, on the inside, I haven't changed at all.
