Weekend Achievements...

Monday AM edition:

 

pots of purple basil and oregano added to herb garden

  

Tomatoes, peppers, basil, lemon balm and cilantro in the jumbo container by the barbecue

  

Third attempt at setting the stone (if this doesn't work we'll be calling in the mason)!

Still to do this afternoon:

  

more weeding needed


and it's time for the annual carpenter bee hunt. Those guys will be going down. Spotted four so far, two dead (from the white powder I dusted in the holes last month) and two bent on making the siding into a holey mess.

Certain traditional Memorial Day activities will not be happening:

 

The pool is covered with a layer of pollen and only 73 degrees. Brr

On a hot day like today that cold pool looks mighty refreshing, even with the pollen coating. In another note, we'd love if you wouldn't mind changing your blogroll over from TYH to Young House Love (www.younghouselove.com) since we moved! You can read all the dirty details about the switch (and how it came about) right here: http://www.younghouselove.com/2009/07/the-end-of-this-young-house/

Thanks so much for your help!
