When will I learn my lesson? I start something with lots of ideas in my head…and one by one they develop a flaw or a hook or they are suddenly a “what was I thinking?!” realization. I’ve enough irons in the fire but I’m still thinking “what if?” Must learn to do all the brainstorming first ….and wait for the second thoughs to just die down before actually starting something. The POND has taken up far too much of my energies…I’m going looking for water plants…but the budget hasn’t increased…something else will have to go in order to fit in with my latest “must have” and it certainly doesn’t help to take a swing through goY, because all these new ideas and plants just keep complicating my agenda. sooo…
The pond will be fine as it is until I have my plants in….the only thing I really must do is patio stone or some kind of surfacing around the pond…
Looks like I lost my clematis to rodents! so I’m going to move the trellis closer to the honesuckle vines that are thriving and in need of support. I’ve lost some of my less hardy plants to the rigors of last winter and a rodent population(Voles) that are sleek and fat.That could be the subject for the next blog…what voles eat!!
need an obelisk (or two) and still haven’t completely finished the birdhouses yet…must get them up there… The birds are ecstatic about the pond… best birdbath for miles around…like kids at the beach!. Time to repot the waterlilies and ensconce my three remaining fishies in their new ocean…(I’m sure after a winter in an aquarium they will be lost) Need a cup of tea and my wellies, time to go to work and forget dreaming any more tasks to tax my aging energies!.
