We had a meeting at Long Beach City Hall, about trying to increase the artistry of the decorative banners downtown.
Although the weather was exceedingly windy, we deadheaded the planters downtown.
Later, we heard that the whirligigs are part of a campaign to help abused children. A newspaper article the next day explained the pinwheels.
Halfway through our deadheading, we took time to try out the new Abbracci’s Coffee Bar, just south of the Fun Rides.
We enjoyed Tony and Bernardo’s company and will find this a great place to duck in out of the rain while working in Long Beach.
We deadheaded two more blocks of planters in the wind.
Allan’s photos of downtown flowers:
On the way home, we checked on the boatyard and port gardens for wind damage. All were fine. At home
I did not feel much like weeding in the wind at home and forced myself to work in the front garden, hoping to get it done.
I did weed along the front of the house and the difficult north east corner which is full of an unpleasant smelling mint like weed.
Now that I have the front garden weeded, my reward will be to turn the compost if I desire to do so before weeding in the back garden.Allan had weeded most of the patio whilst I was weeding in front.
Tomorrow, after ten days indoors, Skooter will be allowed outdoors again. We hope for non windy weather so that we can start the beach approach weeding.
