Outside Projects are on Hold

To hot!  I water enough to keep things alive, well so far.  Yes, I should get out early, but who wants to do that?  Well, I guess some do, but by the time I have my morning tea, iced, it is already 9 o'clock.  And it starts getting hot by then.  I have not finished the walk, but I do carry a big rock in from time to time.  I think hauling gravel will have to wait until fall.  No big deal.  If I were to get it all done, what would I do this fall?

This is a new idea I am working on.  I don't seem to like it as well as doing the tiles.  I am still in the planning stage.  Note cards with a small fired tile included.  Need to work on getting a picture right.
Until next time.

Just learning how to move photos from the iPad to blogger.  Had to download a google app.  Hope it all keeps working!  :)

Grass, grass, grass

Nice cloudy morning, so I decided to weed eat some grass.  It is done and I am hot. Okay I'll get some Gatorade.

As you can see this is a before photo.  I went out early to really get something done, but after an hour, it was time to take a break.  Iced tea.  

Mexican Flame Vine. I am expecting great things from this plant.  It is suppose to cover the dead cedar and have lots of orange blooms.  Hmmmmmm

Paint, paint, paint

i am way behind on tiles..well I do not have any in stock, so today is pain, paint, paint.  It was cloudy and misty this morning, so it was a good morning to stay in.  But now the sun it trying to come out.  I need to go water the tomato plants and pull some green onions.  I have discovered I really like them in a salad.

I have about 4 hummingbirds.  I had bought new feeders, a new design, with tiny little slits.  Well the hummers just weren't staying. So, I took a large nail and enlarged the holes.  Now they want to sit and take a good drink.  Also have a Scotts oriole passing by. They are yellow and black. I saw a flash of orange the other day, but it hasn't been back.  Maybe one of these days.

Till next time.  Have a glass of iced tea and enjoy the will only take a few minutes.
