This morning I started the day by adjusting the carburetor on my little Mantis Tiller -------YOU GO, GIRL !-------I had never done THAT before, but it was necessary, and I got 'er done, so to speak ! Praise God for my hubby's cheerleading on the sidelines ! Anyway, once I got the little machine running well, I went over all of the garden spot that I had broken up last Fall. It's not a big space, although it's more than we ever dug up out in Oklahoma. I may do more, but will wait to see exactly what it is I want to plant and how much space I think that I'll need. I'm not a canner, and I don't have a lot of freezer space, so I need to be realistic about what we can use and share.
Then this afternoon I finished weeding that flower garden that runs down the side of the driveway, the one where the Dwarf Crape Myrtles are planted. I noticed that those shrubs have tiny budding leaves on them, and my Rose of Sharon trees are starting to leaf out too........even the 3 in 1 that I ordered from Michigan Bulb. Of course, it's only about 9 inches tall, if that, so it'll be awhile before I see 3 different colored blooms on it. But you know what? The little Lilac bushes that I put out last Fall have buds on them, and they're only about 14 inches tall !
Our temperature here today may have actually reached 80 degrees ! It's very warm inside tonight, but there's a breeze coming in the windows. I just love sleeping with the windows open at night. We're predicted to get semi-serious storms here tomorrow, so I went to the grocery store tonight instead of to church. There was a good crowd at church when I guiltily drove by on my way home......John is doing a good job of teaching that class.
