Fifteen flowers Hummingbirds love to visit

Fifteen flowers Hummingbirds love to visit.

Blog messages regarding Hummingbirds in my yard: (1) Hummingbird on feeder; (2) Hummingbird Heaven; (3) Hummingbird outside my window; (4) Camera available; (5) No joke; (6) Believe it or not; (7) Gratefully grateful; (8) Hummingbird poster and trivia; many other messages, search with the word “Hummingbird.” ~~ They move so fast, it’s difficult to get a good picture.

Bordering on absurd ?!

During a visit with a neighbor, it was suggested I lock my refrigerator. The laundry room is shared with my “across the driveway”  neighbor. As I’ve indicated in earlier blog messages, he is very angry with me. He shouts and curses at me; pounds on my trailer demanding I come outdoors and talk to him about the disputed situation. My several-doors-away-neighbor suggested he is the type of person who would poison my food in my refrigerator. My “several-doors-away-neighbor”  has known “across the driveway neighbor”  for seven or eight years and knows he goes to great length to get his own way. I haven’t caved to his demands so his anger is red-hot toward me.

Invariably, I “need”  something a few days, or a few weeks, after it is sold or donated. I had fifty feet of new chain, in original container, that was reasonably priced and sold during the yard sale. Now I’ll pay “top dollar”  at Lowe’s. ~~ The last several days, I’ve been delighted to function as a hostess; I’ve served my guests iced tea, Gatorade, or V-8 from my auxiliary refrigerator. Now I risk poisoning my guests??

Today, focus on the garden

Almost the first thing I accomplished this morning: Spray the plants with Fels Naptha. Here is information from a blog I published while I was deeply immersed in veggie gardening (at that other location). I have a large quantity (previously prepared) that will last for years. It only takes a teaspoon in a quart of water. ~~ I also prepared Epsom Salt for garden projects.

Truthfully, first thing: I was working with the blocks AGAIN. I’m so eager to complete that project so I can turn my attention to other projects!! After spraying plants, I transplanted recent purchase mark-downs–and tomato plant. I robbed soil from planters that previously held beautiful plants (at that other location) but plants perished because I neglected them after the trauma of the eviction (and hard freeze in January).

I told a friend I’m so tired I’m cross-eyed. Six-thirty PM as I publish this.

P.S. April 29th: Last night, went to bed at 8:50 and enjoyed nine blissful hours of sleep.
