Busy weekend ~ had a 21st birthday party for my daughter! I spent 6 hours power washing my deck ~ exhausting but well worth the effort. I had no idea how bad it was until I started but now it looks almost new!!! I power washed my front porch and sidewalks today ~ I love that thing! I also sprayed Seven for bugs on my hostas, sprayed a fungicide to hopefully prevent rust on my Hollyhocks, sprinkled Snail/Slug repellent, etc... My son, "step-daughter" and I went for a walk this evening and I came across a pink Columbine growing randomly along the road ~ of course I had to dig it up and transplant it in one of my flowerbeds! I was sickened by all the trash along the road, so when I got home, I grabbed a trash bag and my "picker-uppers" and went back to clean up the trash. I just don't understand why people feel the need to throw their trash out along a road instead of waiting until they get home. My grandmother wrote a poem about polluters a long time ago, I wish I could remember it. I do remember it said something about "don't be a polutatic" and "did you ever see a muskrat wear a beer can for a hat"! She was probably smiling at me from above, watching me clean up the beer cans along the road! I ended my evening with a quite night on my patio with a glass of wine, listening to the water trickle on my little fountain, the birds chirping and the frogs singing ~ very peaceful!
