Meanwhile I was doing some..less strenuous chores. I put new solar lights around the front flower garden and did a little weeding though you probably wouldn't be able to tell if I took a picture since I tend to leave weeds that I like such as clover and violets and the clover has really taken over this year. I also had some flowers to plant and couldn't figure out what to do with them. I saw a big pot out back and this is where they went. So there are chrysanthemums in the middle and petunias around them.
I also planted some chives that I bought at the flea market for a dollar and some sage that I had started myself. I then went down and watered the garden. It take a while because I just turn on the spigot on the rain barrel and since the rain barrel is up the hill by the back shed gravity sends it down the hose to the garden and there is only about half as much pressure as a regular hose.
Phil also got the grass cut and a cut down a lot of the little trees that sprout everywhere. Did I mention that it was 94 degrees F. today? Yeah, just a little warm but everything does look so much better.
Just an added note here, the pig was up today and walking around almost like normal. He stayed up most of the time and doesn't look nearly as stiff.
