Today I did many of the chores I skipped yesterday. Boring. I did get the flowers planted in the gravesite-looking garden bed: yarrow (bright yellow and paprika), peonies, shasta daisies, liriope and some others. All are perennials for bright sun, and I stuck with a palette of yellows with some reds and white sprinkled in, which is the good thing about starting from scratch--you don't have to work around something that someone else planted. Our plan is to add another segment each year--10-15 feet at a time--we have a very long fenceline. I'll show pictures of the finished bed in a few weeks--I need a few more plants, and it's pretty raw-looking now.
Here's where I left off on 1763 at 11 p.m. last night. I worked on it for a couple of hours after dinner.
And then I picked it up a bit this afternoon when I was through in the garden:
I won't be able to make much progress over the next few days, since school starts this week. I think I need to take some vacation days, but I'll wait to see how bad the assignments will be. I'm taking a required management course and cost accounting this semester.
Here's Pink, offering me some help on my homework:
I hope your Memorial Day was good!
