And working, of course. But lots of gardening. Things are in full swing in our yard. The lithodora (below) is glowing beneath the lilac that’s almost out.
The broom plant is simply gorgeous, the columbine are stunning, the foxglove are over four feet tall now and just coming into blossom and the rose bushes are covered in buds.
We’ve been busily seeding, weeding and hauling monster rocks around. Between being outside all day and at work when I’m not, the house looks like a bomb hit it, scattering clothes and dog fur. I did seven loads of laundry yesterday (hung it all on the line – we’ve cut out energy consumption by 20% since installing the clothesline and florescent bulbs) and chased virtually (but very fuzzy) dogs around with the vacuum cleaner today. A bit more civilised, but still not quite there.
Next project: flower and vegetable beds along the south side of the house and clover where there ought to be some but is none.
