Former client Gene pulled up in his car to ask gardening advice about lavatera, montbretia, and buddleias.
All the watering and deadheading made us hungry. For the second time this week, we had lunch out to try to get some energy to finish our workday.
This time, I walked around and checked on the Ilwaco planters while Allan watered.
Allan had to move to another faucet while filling the water trailer tank because a boat was being hoisted in.
I finished up with some more weeding at the boatyard.
And then, at last, a good five hours after lunch at Captain Bob’s, we went for our weekly dinner at
The Cove Restaurant
This week, our garden gang had the pleasure of being joined by Our Kathleen, who was down for a week at her beach cottage.
We lingered till the vacuum cleaner came out.
We now have four days off. I have no particular plans other than my hope for a good rainy reading day on Saturday (as predicted) and some smallish gardening projects.
1997 (age 73):
Sept 15: Wet, rainy and cool. Would like to build a fire in stove but will wait till Bill Jr cleans chimney. He said there is a lot of creosote in it.
1998 (age 74):
Sept 15: I received a box of Hydrangea plants and a box of Poppy plants from Spring Hill. Both orders had been cancelled by them. They are really mixed up. My froggie is in the garden sink so I put the frog/toad house in the sink with a latticed tray over him.
