This garden was work!
First I had to dig out the grass, underneath was sand, so once my shovel (Yes, I'm getting much better with a shovel, far from the days of falling off the shovel & fracturing my ribs! lol) like I was saying, once the shovel was at the sand depth, I pushed & lifted up weed sod. Once I had a shovel of it I walked over to the large depressed area under the clothes line & placed it there. It would join up with the sod weeds from the side garden done last week. I'm filling the hole one shovel load at a time!
I placed the Lupins on the corner to be the show of this east coast cottage. They can spread wherever they want, just not on the lawn as I'll mow them down.
The stones need to be added to finish the edge of the garden but that will have to wait till Bill returns.
I love lupins'!
I was at the optometrist yesterday due to 'lighting flashes' & I've over done the lifting of soil, sod, mulch, water jugs, etc... too much heavy lifting & if I don't get the gel to stabilize inside the eye, trouble will happen with the retina.
I'm going to ride the tractors & mow the lawn as it's still June & the growing is furiously fast.
Yes, I'll mow slowly. lol
I've purchased bunting flags for Canada Day! I'll take photos when I've got the decorating done.
I just wish I had better health for the work needed to be done. I don't like hearing about 'aging' my mind is not there but I have this shell of a body that keeps reminding me to listen to it! So...
Sewing & rug hooking to settle things down in my eyes, for a while. I know I'm not a reader but something tells me I may become one! lol Something that makes one sit-stay!
I've heard that a woman, visiting from IL USA, was the one that hit the bear. Oh the fright she must have had! Such a true story for her to tell for years to come of visiting Canada & its wildlife.
Thank you for visiting Carroll Cottage & viewing the gardens.
Stay safe & healthy this summer. Yes, I'm going to try to practice what I preach!
