|The Front Garden in March|
I forgot to take a picture of the front garden on the 20th, but, I took one, today. The lantana is flowering, the osteospermum is still flowering, too, but, the star of the garden, right now, is the climbing rose by the front door:
I think this is the most number of flowers it has ever had at one time!
Yesterday, I did a little more cleaning in the garage. I am by no means done in there, but, I am making progress. Later, I called for a donations pick up and scheduled it for Wednesday!
Today, I brought in the trash cans after they were emptied, watered the front garden, and did a little more cleaning in the garage! This little fellow supervised me:
I'm not very good at identifying lizards, but, I would say that this is a Western Fence Lizard, even though it is on the garden wall and not a fence! LOL.
In the evening, after my daughter finished work for the day, we dropped off a bag of garden grown greens and peapods at a friend's house (we left it at their front door and texted them to let them know; afterwards, my friend called to thank me).
After we came home, daughter took neighbor T's trash can in for her and T called to thank her. Later, I chatted with friend R.
Finally, I put the bags and boxes of donations out by the front door for pick up, tomorrow. They will be picked up any time between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., I had been told; I do not want to wake up early in the morning to set out the donations before 8:00 a.m., so, I put them out, in the evening. There are nine bags and boxes of donations, including a box containing a punch bowl and 10 punch cups, plus the hooks for the cups. I went back and forth with the bunch bowl set as it had been a gift from my mother. But, I have another punch bowl (a bit larger, but, without the cups). I decided to keep that one and donate the one with the matching cups. My daughter sorted through her closet and donated a huge trash bag full of clothes, as well. She also gave me two purses (one with the tags still on) to give to friend R to send to her granddaughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to share garden produce with friends
- Feeling better
- Phone chats with friends
- What I have been able to accomplish in the garage
- Weekly trash pick up!
Today's joyful activity was taking a bag of garden produce to drop off at a friend's house.
Plans for tomorrow include M's visit to tend to the garden (he is bringing me a trellis for the passionfruit vine!) and an appointment in the afternoon with the tax accountant to go over my tax documents.
How was your day? How is your garden coming along? What are your plans for Wednesday?
