And out back in beautiful Weather (for the moment)... Wish it would stay this way
And into disappointment, Cucumbers not doing so well in this persistent Heat after a good start
The Tomatoes are looking good, some extra Large ones on the Celebrity Plants
But the Pumpkin Vines after such a good start aren't doing as well, too much heat
A few more Male Blooms but still no Females and so still no Pumpkins in sight
On the way back in, more Morning Glory Blooms on one Vine, some potentials on another
I planted Two kinds, only have seen the Dark Purple ones so far, none of the Blue ones
Cashed in my $50 in Winners, bought $20 more, back home to Win anther $15, not too shabby
But first, 8:30 a.m. Time to go Fortune hunting, where to? Price Chopper Service Counter this time
Cashed in my $25 worth of Winners, headed to Machine One, stuck in the $25, bought Five Lottos
Back home to scratch off a $10 and $15 Winner, got my Money back, well that really isn't a Win is it?
The Day drifted on, not doing much besides a little of this and a little of that (very little)
So it was around 1 p.m. when I headed out to Lowes for my dirt... Dirt? Oh, I mean Potting Soil
And it was HOT, Weather said 91 but felt to me like 98 Plus... Anyway, I parked close
And there was a stack of Potting Soil right out front, went in , bought a Sack, drove right beside it
Dumped it into the back Seat of the Mercedes and headed on to a HOT trip back Home
The A/C Fan doesn't work in the Mercedes so as I said... it was HOT and I was dripping when I came in
That looked like a good time to mix a Margarita and start on filling a Pot with Soil
Then rescuing some more little 'wild' plants from the rocks in the yard
Back out for maybe Ten Minutes to fill the Pot with Soil, and that was enough for me
Back in to finish my Margarita and catch up on Bobby Flay, wish he didn't talk 'Baby Talk'...
And again, back out to dig Five more Celosia Orphans from the Rocks, then Pot them in one big Pot
Watered then gently but thoroughly and now we shall see if they like their new Home, I'll know Monday Morning
So, completed my Morning Computer stuff and headed out back to water everything
And I watered everything, the Cucumbers looked better after a night's rest in the Cool
More blooms on the Pumpkins but still no Female Flowers, looks like last year so far
Ho Humm, on to the boring part of the Day, what to do? Too HOT outside fer sure... Too early for TV
So, I had made a opy of the New June Blog Video to check it out, saw some Photos misplaced
Time for some clean up Editing, changed a few Photos, changed the order of some others, looking better
Saved that Edit, 2:30 p.m. Time for something else... Well the Gazebo Bird Feeder was empty, could fill that
So, braving the Afternoon heat I took the Feed Sack out front, filled te Feeder with all that was left
Filled that Gazebo Feeder about halfway, that shoud last the Birdies about a Week
OK that was the Day, back in to cool off again and finish the Day same as always, Good Night Irene
Heading back in, at the top of the Stairs, that top Lily Plant looking dead after the Bug attack
So I decided to trash it, pulled it up, pulled the whole root ball up with it... but what is that?
A tiny white stem next to the dead one... Maybe some life left? Thought I would repot it and see
Cruising into the Afternoon, heard a mottor running outside my Window, took a look, big Fire Truck
So what's going on? Went out to see the Maintenance Manager and two Firemen walking toward the Gully
Walked next door then saw them out back, went out back to ask, AHA... Fire Inspection time, no action
And back out one more time at 3:00 p.m. More progress this time, finished watering everything out front and really well
So then... Time to call it a Day for outside and finish up inside in the Cool, how about a Margarita to start?
And later hot up some of those goodies I have stashed in the Fridge, maybe some of that Pork and Cabbage, Spinach and Bacon maybe?
Well first, that Margarita and a Fake News Catch Up and then a wind down to Dinner... Yeah!
OK, 7:30 a.m. The Sun peeking over the Gully again, time to check the Crops out back
Stopped on the way to the Stairs to get a Photo of the Morning Glories, Two more nice Blossoms
Well I replaced the dying Rhododendron with that Dwarf Spruce on Wednesday, what about that dead Asiatic Lily?
Thought I would run over to Riverside to see if Larry's Nursery had one, nope all gone
And they are in the Process of selling off the Spring stuff and will close for the Year last of June
OK, all done outside for the Day, now all done except the inside Afternon and Evening wind dowm
Remembered I still had some of that Super Pizza, had a piece of that with un vaso de Vino and TV
Then on to wind down another pretty fair Day... Yeah, not so bad, cudda won the Big One though
