The weather has been great the past couple of days. Low to upper 70s. The past two evenings I worked in the front yard and the pug roamed the yard. I got the front flower beds weeded. De-grassed the area around my Earth Kind rose and dead headed the roses. Cleaned out the iris bed. Thinned out the mint. Last night I moved some day lillies around and watered everything.
It is supposed to be another nice evening and then back up to the 90s with storm possibilities tomorrow. I really need to weed the herb garden and tomatoes. I also really need to clean out the flower bed in the back and decide what to do with it. There is a bare middle and I need to decide what to plant there or move some day lillies and iris around to fill in. I have some lily of the valley back there that seems to get overshadowed. I may move it to the front of the flower bed and then fill in with the lillies and iris. And I need to get the four o clocks pulled up back there — they are like the mint — they take over!
I hope to pick up a couple of bags of mulch and get that spread around this weekend.
Three of my summer reading books are at the library. I plan to head over there at noon and pick them up. Testimony, The Elegance of the Hedgehog, and Breakfast with Buddha. So there will be reading this weekend. I am trying to finish up Acceptance by Susan Coll — a novel about a college admissions counselor and various students trying to get into college and the competitiveness of the families, etc. It is an interesting satire.
