Just as predicted, the weather was sunny with no wind. Although I would like to have stayed home, I knew that a windless day would be a good one to weed the very exposed boatyard garden.
We chatted through the fence with Amanda, a young woman who was working on the Pura Vida. She had a sweet dog named Toes. We learned that it is a salmon and halibut fishing boat that was rebuilt (not their word) from a sailboat.
Lots and lots of horsetail needed pulling. That, a bit of shotweed, and some areas of creeping sorrel were the only problem weeds. The horsetail is uneradicable.
The temperature got to 70.5 F. I was downright dizzy and am apparently very hard to please about the weather. I took a break on the viewing bench to eat half a sandwich.
Will have to be weeded again, probably, before the annual children’s parade goes by here on May 3rd.
Planted five Gaura ‘Whirling Butterfly’. one Jackman’s Blue rue, and an Agastache ‘Sangria’.
Because the weather had cooled slightly, we decided to weed the garden at the east end of Howerton Way.
I think I was too tired to untilt the photos.
We rewarded ourselves for a long hot day with dinner at Pelicano Restaurant.
