It’s been dark and rainy for days.. weeks? And today seemed no different, but around 10:30am the sun started poking through the clouds!
We took out the solar lights Mom got us last summer, and the welcome sign she brought out for Jeff’s birthday, and the Golden Retriever sign the breeders sent us at Christmas, and a few other seasonal decorations.
The sun stayed out so we e headed into town and bought some plants for the hanging planters on the porch. The rest of the gardens around here seem to be stocked full of perennials so we’ll see how they progress this summer (our first summer here).
We came back and started planting the containers. Jeff put together this water hose caddy we found at Canadian Tire. And then it happened…. 213409820934820398423 black flies came out to play. I was trying to plant the plants – and my arms were bleeding, the top of my ear was going numb from the bites and they were sitting on my glasses. It became a race for survival!
