Laundry Basket from some site- basket holding all my favorite colored clothing. I did paint my floor white once- in college and my room mate was "not amused". It washed off easily.
I carried all my annuals out to the front porch. It's 72 and they aren't in the sun. I also tipped the large planter over and slid the Euonomous out of the pot and then onto a tarp and dragged it down to the garden. The fenced garden. Dug a hole for it. It might be upset about the relocation for a few weeks. It's roots are untouched so that should be a good thing. We'll cover it for the Winter. It's a zone 6 and Winter will be a zone 5. It had been root bound. A large garbage can with a few bricks on top should be a good Winter coat for it going forward.
We hooked up the hose and sprinklers for the Peach trees and gave them and extra extra long drink. No rain. For too long. I have my three empty pots set up- ready to fill. But not yet as the plants that go into them are not outdoor hardy as yet. My old employer greenhouse had Red French marigolds. I usually grow them from seed I save- but I didn't this Winter. I just never could coax myself into doing the work.
Sad news- when we pulled the fig out of it's pot- it was obvious the tree was dead. And husband had the new- self built container there and was having a very hard time letting go. I have to find something else for that lovely new wooden container. We'll think of something.
I wrote an email to my brother to ask about sourdough starter- his wife had made some in the early months of the pandemic. He replied from his hospital bed -- but good news- he's going home today. Not COVID related but (still serious) he said it was an awful time to be in the hospital.
Monday I can visit the inside of the library. If the line isn't too long. And they have Express Books again. Best sellers we can borrow for 7 days only but we can't reserve them- first come and all that.
I am wearing short pants and short sleeved shirt today. 72 and very warm. Still nice and cool in the house. We have to hope we can find help with the window A/C units. Remember last year- one fell out the window. Perhaps George? No.. I think he hit his quota- cutting and carrying our Christmas Tree into the house. I keep remembering Deb's story of the 88 year old man who tied a rope to the A/C unit and his 88 year old wife- She was supposed to keep it from falling out the two story window. Wow...I laughed out loud. I can see her zipping straight out the window like she was on a zip line. We won't do that.
