What a night!
This entry starts from yesterday. I slept in yesterday morning because I was up very late, (3:30am) the night before. I have all the plants ready for the plant auction and spent the better part of the morning and afternoon attaching labels to them. I made up the labels on the computer the night before. The whole car was filled with plants. It's a good thing I didn't have more because I had nowhere else to put them. As you can see from these pictures
the car was packed.
I also took time to do some baking. Good thing I have a bread machine. It was making the dough while I was busy elsewhere. Once the dough was ready I shaped it into two loaves and let it rise in the oven. I baked it off and the loaves were huge. I probably could have made three loaves from it instead of these two. This is sourdough whole wheat bread.
Once I got to the auction it was a very busy place. The volunteers helped me bring the plants in from the car and they were set up on tables with the other donated plants. We had a slew of volunteers to help. "Many hands make light work".
I auctioneered for the last half of the evening and it was a long evening. I picked up some good buys for myself including another mountain bluet, but a pink one. It will look great in my front flower bed. Also, I got some more perennial geraniums.
I didn't get home last night untill 12:30 am. I stopped with my neighbour at a Tim Horton's for a cuppa tea and donut on the way home. I went right to bed once I got home as it was a long day and I was very tired.
As I write this, Frisky
is watching me. She is sitting on top of my briefcase beside my desk. She is such a cutie. I can't let her sit on my lap like she wants or I would not be able to type.
When I got up this morning, and went into the kitchen for a coffee, I looked out the kitchen window and what do I see but four deer in the back garden.
It's a good thing nothing is growing yet, or there would be nothing left.
Well, that's just the start of today, and I have not done much. My biggest job today will be to bring the plants from the car and find spots for them in the gardens, except for the tomato plants I bought. I got a Sweet 100, an Oxheart Beefsteak, and a couple of Tiny Tims. The rest are perennials. What can I say, I am addicted to gardening and just can't help but buy more plants. I love variety in the garden and this year should prove that. I can hardly wait till they grow into wonderful specimens.
