Weekly Update

Last weekend, it was nice both days of the weekend, which was just lovely and something rare this year (okay, it rained buckets on Sunday night, but at least the daylight hours were lovely). It was so wonderful to be outside. Tom and I wrestled the cover off the pool and started the vacuuming process. There was lots of weeding (lots of weeding) and planting accomplished. The herbs are planted, and all look great in their pots. It’s such a time of beginnings.
