V had a week´s vacation. Unfortunately, the heavens opened and it rained buckets All. Frickng. Week.
He built a raised bed and I planted a variety of summer bulbs, azaleas that were in planters, some of the roses, a loquat and an agapanthus, along with some plants we picked up at the farmers market. It took up most of the finished compost, what was left of the manure, a bunch of leaves and several sacks of soil mix. Needless to say, the plants are all watered in.
And he fenced in the corner along the creek, connecting it to the gate, using some of the chestnut stakes we had. Not much of a physical barrier, but I love the way it looks. And he repaired the end corner of the wall which was collapsed, to accommodate the fence post. Isn´t he swell?
I also pruned roses and the grape vines, and finally weeded the garlic. We´ll have to wait until things dry out a lot to do more planting, but it feels so good to cross things off the list! Now, we´re expecting a frosty cold snap this week, so we´ll see what survives.
