The Hummingbirds seem to have abandoned my feeder. Too many changes in my backyard; too few flowers. The squirrels are really cautious when they approach the patio (which formerly provided a smorgasbord of treats). I survived the night; it’s a beautiful sunny morning after one-half inch of rain yesterday. I couldn’t stay out of the backyard; I’m drawn as though pulled by a magnet. Just for the sake of a picture, I wrestled those heavy bases, and planter, so they appear with Shepherd’s hooks and one trellis. Question: Will these expensive garden accessories have resurrected life in another location?
Seeing a Hummingbird at the hanging basket brightened my day!! They have to fatten up for their long flight to Central America.
(I was a bit hasty with my comment in the earlier message.)
An overcast morning; great for picture-taking. Rain expected later in the day. The last thing I wanted to do… but couldn’t procrastinate!! First two pictures show the Mandavilla vine a few days ago. Up on my ladder, I began to cut the vine away from the trellis (closet organizer).
…I pray the Lord my soul to take!!” Too much heavy lifting today!! ~~ Pictures one and two taken July 12th; picture three taken Sept. 13th. Now the remaining hanging baskets are hooked to the eave because I still want to provide a few flowers for my Hummingbirds. Pictures five and six when I disassembled…. (Click this link to see how I assembled.) The Honeysuckle remains as the last plant in my backyard garden. (Click this link to see when it was planted.) Picture eight shows planter with river rock from a couple of days ago plus today’s contribution. All river rock!! I speculate it will take two men and a skip loader to move it!! I moved several other planters today but I won’t attempt that one.
“Parting is such sweet sorrow.”
How I hated to disassemble the support for the Bluebird house. Time is of the essence!! Components need to be washed; the planter and river rock need a new home. This was a late afternoon project after a day sorting, packing, and boxing items for Second Chance Boutique.Today I focused on the kitchen and most is done. Recently I removed clothing from the closets and packed–or donated. I believe “the finish line” is within view.
Putting myself in the picture. Recently (on TV news) I heard the term “selfie“. This old timer had never heard the word. But I love to be creative so experimented…. This is the “storeroom” with boxes and containers packed for the forthcoming move.
Another trip to Second Chance Boutique. “Good riddance,” emphasis on good!!
I needed to take… and unload.. so I would have the laundry baskets for future additional donated items.
So much to do before I hitch the T@B teardrop trailer to my KIA and travel down the highway. Time is running out!! So many more things to pack and/or take to my favorite charity. So many decisions!! When I’m pulling my hair out, not knowing what to do next, I turn to my laptop computer and check e-mail, play mahjong, or create a blog message.
