I'm over the shed. And I'm so over March.
Some tasks accomplished yesterday: One more dead vole. That's three. The electronic trap is working. I also spread the castor oil based mole / vole deterrent all over the front walk garden. It has a very strong smell.
I set up the hoses. This year a different system. I had such trouble reeling the long 150 - 200 foot extensions of hoses back to the house after watering the Birch Garden or Meadow's Edge, or out to the back hill. This year I am going to keep just 50 to 100 feet on the reel at the house, and roll the mobile cart to any place where I need water out in the yard.... just hook it up to the end of the "house" hose.
|ready to easily roll to each "house hose" connection where needed|
|like the moss green, but the hose itself kinks and is not easy to wind up|
And we'll see how the remote station by the side of the deck works this year with two hoses, a coiled short one for watering stuff on that side of the deck and a longer one for hooking up to the rolling hose cart!
|will this work?|
I ended up not knowing what to do with the pair of silly triangle shaped white vinyl planters. I put them by the boxwoods, since it's kind of a formal look, and I need to put something in... maybe the crocosmia bulbs I just got, in pots? Yes, I think so. A little mini parterre sort of thing. Kind of. I dunno.
|seems like overkill for this simple gravel area, but what the heck|
