GRANDMA'S GARDEN

Sunday, June 3, 2007

My garden looks like small bombs have gone off around here.

The puppy has dug ten thousand holes. My favorite morning memory this week, was walking outside with a cup of coffee at dawn and seeing one tiny teddy bear placed in each of the first five holes leading away from the porch. Each teddy sat, head up in each hole. I buy little teddies at the thrift... Sign in to see full entry.

Abuelita's Garden shows the effects of 7 month Pity Party.

I was so busy feeling sorry for myself and sleeping away painful days that I didn't hear the garden calling for help. Everything is so dry and delicate right now. I am watering again. The puppy likes this new activity of mine. She digs and then finds mud and digs and then comes to me with her black... Sign in to see full entry.

I Have Pilez and pilez and pilez of stuff in the garden

The landlord chopped off tree limbs and there is a pile in the front garden and there are bags and bags of dog poop and debris out there, too. The back garden has piles of bamboo, piles of empty boes, piles of garbage removed from my storage shed and broken furniture and things. It has another pile... Sign in to see full entry.

The Garden is Chopped to Pieces, but it's a Good Thing

I bought a reciprocating saw and what fun they represent and what power. I can not only chop off overhanging nopal cacti and overhanging tree branches, but can chop bamboo off at the ground level and have even considered lowering all of my furniture, by cutting down the legs... So, I put the saw... Sign in to see full entry.

I raked for hours and made piles of stuff and then, I left town...

When I returned from my trip, the piles were scattered and the garden was full of everything that I hadn't tied down before leaving. I must now rake again. I bought hooks for all of my garden tools and hooks for all of my household implements and they were where I had left them. The new garbage can... Sign in to see full entry.

My Gardener just Stopped by and the Garden Amazed Him

There are seven paper bags which used to hold 40 pounds of birdseed, which were being kept to bag up dog poop, etc., but which Baby the puppy tore to shreds. There are teddy bear guts and nativity packaging (ie. peanuts and styrofoam wavelets, all over the front and back gardens. The bamboo has been... Sign in to see full entry.

Garden Now Replaces Storage Shed....

My seven months pregnant (ex, but never ex, you know?) DIL was going to empty her storage shed (rental) to save money and to have a yard sale of her goods. She was going to empty the shed on her own!! Her home's renters are not paying their rent and she is in a panic, having no discretionary funds... Sign in to see full entry.

Garden and House Decorated for Halloween by Family Spiders and Friends

I have not been in the front garden to do anything more than scoop poop for months. I turn on the hose and water things to keep them alive and that's it. Smae with the back garden. Inside the house, I sweep and mop daily and that's it. You cannot tell that I do this, because thirty minutes after... Sign in to see full entry.

So busy inside that my garden came in the door to get attention from me.

There are spiders in all corners, I just noticed today, looking up for the first time in months. One Daddy Long Legs has a really intricate web from the bookcase to my computer desk and he works on it constantly, now that I've noticed it. June Bugs are crawling on the floors, there's a cricket in my... Sign in to see full entry.

Rains and Puppy and Insects

The rains have made the things outside grow out of control. I walk in knee high bermuda grass and cut back bamboo with a machete to keep walkways open and I repot cacti to get them out of the rain. The Puppy Who Sorta Lives Here tears up anything and everything that she can find outside and scatters... Sign in to see full entry.
