Yesterday I watched this goofy squirrel sit there on the little perch on the other side of the fence and eat his nut. It took him awhile.
Then he jumped down and got a drink and jumped in one of the green chairs.
After that he came to the patio door and stared at me. I think it’s so funny how the outdoor critters are coming to the door to greet me lately!
And then the squirrel jumped into one of the wicker chairs. Then Charlie saw him and off he ran.
This sedum autumn joy, that I moved from the clematis container to its own pot weeks ago, has grown quickly.
Small sedum plants are about to take over my galvanized containers, so I will be digging some out in order to make room for other plants. I even saw sedum coming up in between the breaks in the concrete.
The only other plant that has run amok on my patio is purple morning glory.
So far I’ve been able to keep the various mints from spreading beyond where I want them to grow. Mint is well known for taking over, but it’s much easier to keep mint in check when gardening in containers.
Not sure if I will plant blue morning glory seeds this year. I haven’t had any luck with the blue seeds coming up in recent years. And I’ve done everything you’re supposed to do to ensure the success of the seeds germinating. I nick the seeds and soak them.
But the purple morning glory is a wild variation that sprouts up wildly.
Yesterday was cold and overcast. I had to roll Jade the tree back inside as it got down to freezing. Thank goodness I had the good sense to put that tree on wheels.
I moved my blue coffee table and stored it in my bedroom. It is really heavy and I’m tired of moving it every time I vacuum and mop.
If anyone around here wants a coffee table, it’s free of charge.
It is 32 x 32 inches and that is pretty small really, but I find as I get older that I have to let health and pain dictate more of my decisions. It is made of good wood (which is why it is heavy).
I have started reading two books that are a disappointment to me.
I read more than half of one and gave up. The plot was confusing and the story line seemed implausible to me. Then I started another one that I’m iffy about. Not sure I can keep reading it either.
When you start reading a book how long do you give the story line to appeal to you?
