Lateral Progress

There were lots of things I could have done today. The resume needs to be updated, and then of course there are the cover letters and applications. There is also the ever present reality of dishes and laundry. And I suppose it would be nice to see the entire rug in the living room again, but it was such a lovely day. So I de-cluttered outside instead.
I have quite the weakness for clearance perennials. It is just such a good deal. And there are a couple of truly sloped areas outside our properly fenced yard that are just back breaking for Robert to weed eat. So today I spent the vast majority of the day putting the vast majority of my clearance rack finds in a proper flower bed. All 15 plants are in the ground, fertilized and watered. There is truly the potential for a fabulous spread in a year or two of growth.
However this still leaves quite a list, which is as follows
Put weed barrier down.
Mulch over weed barrier
Mulch around butterfly bushes
Finish transplanting Yucca plants
Mulch around ALL Yucca plants
Fertilize the weeping willow and cherry trees.
Plant the clearance Hydrangea
Mulch around Peony Rose bush.
Plant tomato plants.
Pot the pink Gerber daisy WALT insisted on buying over the weekend.
Remember to water all the above plants for the remainder of the summer.

And on the never ending chore of keeping my son rational and the dogs out of harms way, and well no wonder my house is a mess. Actually keeping everyone outside seems to be helping keep what is clean -- clean. (Except the bathtub of course)

I know I promised pictures. I am now on the laptop full time and need to install the camera stuff, so soon --- like when it rains I don't spend the whole weekend watering!
