Yesterday was a perfect day. I expect that today will be the same. Perfect I mean for working. Not to hot and not to cold. The right kind of breeze so time passes very quickly. I can plug in my I Pod put on some really good music and I don't know how tired I am until I come in the house. I chopped weeds for 6 1/2 hours. My husband got home from work and grabbed our two youngest sons and in 45 minutes they did more work than I did in all of those hours.
Today I am going to not worry about the rest of the weeds because my husband said that when he gets home tonight they will just finish up. I am going to play in my garden. I thought I would show you a picture of my tiny garden this year.
This isn't a very good picture but I liked it because it has a bit of my husband trees that are in the ground and it has a bit of the berries that we planted last year and they are going to be covered in blooms. I can't wait to pick berries.
I want so bad to plant something. I may just go down to the garden shop and stare at tomato plants.
I just had to show you this cottonwood tree. Last week it had two leaves on it. This was yesterday. It just exploded with leaves. There are already so many leaves that standing under it you can hear it muttering to itself. I always think trees have personalities. This one is a happy tree. The leaves are starting to shimmer.
I wanted to show you my husband's latest project. A couple of summers ago my favorite Sugar Maple tree died. Earlier this year my husband removed the stump and cut it up like this. For the last couple of weeks he has been turning the old stump into bases for his Bonsai trees.
He sanded and then put a special kind of epoxy on them. They turned out so cool that we both go out and stand and look at them.
He already gave this one away to a lady who wanted one for a cake stand. The lady who is making Emilie's wedding cake is doing another party and she wanted a piece of wood like this so he was happy to give it to her.
I will stop here. I have things to do today. I hope your Tuesday is just great.
