Definition of insanity ?

.

.

Washing “outdoor”  planters but not cleaning “indoors.”  My trailer home is woefully neglected because I prefer to spend time in the yard. ~~ Remember the catchy song Enjoy yourselfYou’re gonna take that ocean trip, no matter, come what may. You’ve got your reservations made, but you just can’t get away. Next year for sure, you’ll see the world, you’ll really get around. But how far can you travel when you’re six feet underground?

.

.

Not all the lyrics of the song apply to me but, at my age, it’s important to “enjoy”  before I’m six feet under ground.

Trivia: Those indestructible “planters” originally contained syrup for beef cattle. I was fortunate to obtain empty containers (free, one at a time, over period of two years) from a local farm store. These… aren’t attractive but very useful. I’ve had “attractive” planters, made of cheap plastic, and they become brittle–and break–after a couple of years. I used a “hole saw” to drill large holes in the bottom for drainage. (“Think outside the box.”)

George’s little Christmas tree revisited again

.

.

I’m very protective of George’s little Christmas tree.”  (See Good Grief.) It is under the protection of the “barn” roof, near the front of my 5th-wheel trailer home. I’d be heartbroken if it were in the yard and a tree limb fell on it (tree limbs falling every day)!! I lost precious irreplaceable plants in January’s hard freeze (Hazel’s Christmas Cactus, etc.).

.

.

There was a spurt of new growth in March but no evidence of additional growth since then. ~~ I should check Dave’s Garden and find the name of this little tree?!

Feng Shui today ?!

Feng Shui explained.

.

Fighting depression! Working in the yard lifts my spirits!! I tried to ignore the heat and humidity but was finally forced indoors.

Maybe “Feng Shui”  isn’t achievable for a garden but this old lady has fun arranging and rearranging!

.

Houston TV meteorologist just said “feels like one-hundred degrees.” ~~ Livingston resident says “always watching for a good picture.”

Friday “fotos”

This is a happy day!! “The old lady”  is delighted to show off the planters–and fountain/bird bath–in their new locations. A friend stopped by and helped me move those last few planters–and fountain/bird bath.
