State of the Garden

The garden is very lovely now, though still short on plants. We have a large mostly empty bed in which some wildflowers are growing; we'll shrub it up this winter. The roses are looking nice; the climbers are a bit wild and the wisteria didn't flower this year. I have some tomato and squash plants in pots, and hardy fuschias. But still, lots of space. The lawn is green and lovely, thanks to several weeks of continuous rain. It will be interesting to see what happens if the hot weather continues.

We bought a shed light and a string of rather twee fairy lights from Powerbee, who Amazon customers rave about and who were very nice on the phone. Actually useful solar lights for modest cost! It's like the future or something.

The garden furniture is looking very shabby, and the gas barbecue no longer heats evenly.

A sequence of pictures rather than a video today -- The House of Automata. From Frostfox, and celebrating this place.

And I've started Pinterest. I am not sure I quite have the hang of it. But anyway, there they are. This may be the shortest time I've ever spent with a hot new website, because there doesn't seem to be any way to get my pins *out* of Pinterest, and say, onto my sidebar here.
