Nice Morning

My morn­ing start­ed with a migraine threat. sam­bear drugged me, though, and left me in the nice dark room. That beat back the migraine.

When I got up again a cou­ple of hours lat­er, Katie was up and eat­ing, hav­ing ward­ed off the crit­ters who would have oth­er­wise made sure that I was up. 

I have a great family 🙂

Since then, Katie hung up the biggest bird feed­er for me, and we deployed the but­ter­fly gar­den pot that was a sweet Yule present from joyeuse13 and hub­by. I’m eager to see the seeds grow. We washed out the bird water­ing dish and filled it with fresh water, and Katie and I are plan­ning the shop­ping trip to acquire more bird feed­ing (cat enter­tain­ment) infrastructure. 

We’ll need a fair num­ber more shep­herd’s crook poles, and more hang­ers to be attached to the out­side of the house. We have a finch feed­er with no finch seed, so we’ll get some of that. The dish I used for the ground feed­ers broke over the win­ter, so it needs to be replaced, too. We need a water dish for the front yard, as well. I have sev­er­al good places for win­dow mount feed­ers, but I’ve nev­er tried those before. The hum­ming­bird feed­ers are also AWOL.

All the hear­ing cats enjoyed a walk while we were going in and out, and are still out. Shel­ley espe­cial­ly loves sun­bathing on the patio. I think Kar­li is a bit jeal­ous, as Shel­ley is tak­ing one of her favorite spots.

The shelf unit for start­ing seedlings indoors is assem­bled but has to be adjust­ed before I can real­ly use it. It suf­fered a slight mishap dur­ing con­struc­tion but is still usable.

I’m try­ing to fig­ure out how many con­tain­ers I need for the front and back porch­es. We found a fair num­ber out in the shed, so I’ll just start with those.

We def­i­nite­ly need lots more hooks to mount inside and out for plant bas­kets and bird stuff.

Some nurs­ery is going to be very hap­py when we visit.

Is it weird that I want to mount win­dow box-type planters in sev­er­al places inside the house? Our bath­room just begs for rows of plants beneath those big win­dows, and lots of green­ery would help me get past the ugly brown and mus­tard yel­low tile in there.

We mea­sured the cur­rent back gar­den space, and tonight curiousmay9 and I will fig­ure out how many posts and how much more fenc­ing is need­ed for that. The front gar­den, going in this week­end, won’t need a fence. I think. It’s large­ly intend­ed to keep the dog from wal­low­ing in the gar­den and to serve as a trel­lis for some of the vines.

Last night, curiousmay9 plant­ed about 50 bulbs in front around one of the mag­no­lias, and got the Asian lilies and the aza­leas in the ground. We’ll get the rest of the ros­es plant­ed this weekend.

We’ve decid­ed to move the stone mail­box over a few feet, too. We’re going to widen the dri­ve­way even­tu­al­ly. The new, lock­ing mail­box will go into the ground, then we’ll move the stone over and mor­tar it around the new mail­box. Then I’m going to get some of the creep­ing ros­es and train them up and over it.
