Well it is apparent that 'Buddha" was successfully removed from my truck and I am alive and well and still posting on this blog. I ended up resorting to Plan B and had the store where I obtained Buddha move him from my truck to a trailer. This will be his temporary home until his final resting place is determined.
Not much as been going on in the garden. It's been hotter than blue blazes and what time I've spent weeding, mowing, trimming and the other routine chores has resulted in significant loss of DNA from sweating profusely to the point of severe dehydration and near heat stroke. As a result I've been doing these duties early mornings and late evenings.
The yard has always been my domain while Cynthia has domain over the deck plantings. I wanted to take this opportunity to "show off" her efforts this summer.
The area was brightened by painting an old chair glider a bright yellow.
Dragon-wing begonia and Foxtail Fern
Cynthia has done a wonderful job of planting and maintaining the container plants on the deck. It is such a joy to sit on the deck and feel like you're in a garden. Kudos to my lovely wife!
