I am happy to report the bees are doing well...it looks like new bees have hatched and all is going as it should. And the plants are thriving and blooming (yay).
I ended up not having to water - a storm blew in Thursday evening and we got an inch of rain. Afterwards the weather was just gorgeous with perfect temperatures! And check out the sunset - isn't it so pretty with the sun gilding the edges of the clouds?
The next morning dawned sunny and cool The mowing got done,
I placed the little tractor in the flowerbed - when the plants grow up around it, it will look so adorable among them!
I also got a couple of smaller projects done.
One of them was redoing the small metal table we use out on the back patio. I'd painted it yellow a couple of years ago. Here's what it looked like shortly after I painted it:
This time I painted it red. Love the way it turned out! hm, I forgot to take a picture of it.
I put the tiered cart with dog art in place of the school desk on the back porch (it looks great there). Oops, I forgot to take a picture of it in it's new spot. Blogging fail again!
The next project I took plenty of pictures of - The telephone junction box stuck out like a sore thumb along the garage wall. (I guess the electric meter isn't all that pretty either but it doesn't have a pole going down into the flowerbed). What can I use to hide it?
Let's see...I have several old fence pickets; I have a new Ryobi circular saw; I have Bruce to show me how to use the little circular saw. Sounds like I have everything I need! So with Bruce's guidance, I cut supports and the pickets to size. Then Bruce used his new Kreg pocket jig to put the supports together and I nailed the pickets to them.
An old garden fork head screwed into the pickets hold my cute chalkboard sign I picked up in Canton.
Isn't it wonderful? I like how it hides the telephone box and gives the flowerbed a focal point.
I'll see you soon, sweet B Farm!
