A lot of pictures again!! And I just realized that I didn’t take a final picture of the garden…I’ll get that in this evening!!

Getting Started:

I actually started Friday night, before dinner. I clipped some of the black eyed susan heads back, put them in a bucket and dumped them in another garden. I got two buckets, and I’ve barely touched the garden. I started here, in the foreground and am working my way back. I may not be able to get it all done before it gets too cold. But at least I will have made an effort.

Saturday morning:

I went to get the wheelbarrow so I could put the dirt in it and the tire was flat. So instead I grabbed the lawn mower and hooked the trailer up to it. That actually is much better, I can dig more and not strain my back dumping the load. (You will see a picture of it at the end.) My boyfriend says he’s going to dump it today.

Starting to dig

Things I found while working in the garden:

cicada on a stick

He – or she – is dead. Part of the cycle of life. Cicada are actually one bug I won’t pick up. Too clingy!

it is too cold to move

This little butterfly actually stayed put most of the time I was working in the garden. It was quite chilly when I started.

Just along for the ride

I was actually getting ready to dig and saw these two praying mantis’ in the garden. I believe they are mating – but don’t quote me.

That’s about all the flowers I saved from the section I dug up. There’s black eyed susans and iris’. I thought I’d have to dig up some iris’ from another section, but what I had filled up the space quite nicely.

I didn’t save these… As pretty as they are, they are a wildflower and won’t take long to come back. They are every where! One year, about this time, I had so many in one garden it looked like a layer of snow laying over the flowers/plants. I’ll have to see if I can find the picture.

Not sure if you remember, a couple of weeks ago I showed you a picture of a yellow wildflower and tried to describe the seed pods that it produces. This is it! I have an image of the flower below.

It’s very pretty! And it grows like, well, a wildflower. If you know anything about mimosa trees, you can see how I made the mistake, thinking they were little baby trees.

That’s all! For today anyway – or yesterday! Doesn’t look like much, but the trailer is pretty full.

And then there’s this….

My boyfriend keeps mowing this baby crepe myrtle down, so I put two rocks around it. I need to dig out the grass and put mulch around it, but I didn’t feel like doing it yesterday. On Tuesday, hopefully. It won’t take much.

I’m dying!

In the afternoon, my son and I watched The 7th Voyage of Sinbad. It was made in the 1950’s, so…it wasn’t too bad. A little cheesy, but not that bad. Then, when we sat down to eat dinner, we watched The Kid. The Kid is about Billy the Kid, and wasn’t too bad. I didn’t get to finish it though, I had to get to bed so I could get up this morning.

So that was my Saturday! Working on the garden and watching movies. Not too bad!! I have the next two weekends off, so I will more than likely be able to do something different, maybe go on a road trip! I’m dying to get back out there! We shall see!

I think I’ve rambled on enough about my day yesterday, so I’m going to finish here. Hope you enjoyed!

Have a great time, what ever your plans are!!

Thanks for stopping by!
