Good thing I got outside jobs done before it began to rain. The Burr Oak trees have enough of a canopy that I can stand under them while Chance is doing his thing. We have cooled off here, highs are in the 70’s which is just perfect summer weather.
Rainy Day activities included; a lunch date, a load of laundry, a nap, odd ball things around the house that I needed to get to and some Find A Grave work. Before I knew it the day was over.
Some yellow flowers are beginning to bloom in the wildflower area over the septic system. That dead plant in the middle is a Canada Thistle. I killed it.
I put some old probably not working anymore solar lights in there to mark a few Lilac Bushes. Far Guy mowed around the edges for me. We mowed this entire area last spring and we inadvertantly mowed down the Lilac bushes…they have come back nicely since then.
I wander through this area looking for poison ivy and thistle with my red muck boots on. We mowed part of it that had a plant (Stickseed) with burrs that Chance was getting into. Nothing worse than a dogs covered in burrs.
Some parts are prettier than others. Far Guy threw wildflower seed back there this spring and it is fun to see what comes up.
Thursday is always the day for Far Guy’s Infusion. It usually goes well, we seem to be able to handle small glitches. His port is slowing down. Not enough to be a concern at this time, except he worries about it.
