Oh my gosh, am I beat tonight! We were outside almost all day today. It was a bit chilly mid-day but very sunny with low humidity. I divided a hosta and replanted it. Dug up another one that I wasn't happy with and moved it. Moved the dicentra and it actually split in two so now I have plants in two places. I thinned out the plants at the mailbox - mostly Dusty Miller's and those big daisies (I think, but really, I still don't know exactly what they are). The daisies had gotten so big that they were on the ground...so I just cut those out. Don't know if it will hurt them and really don't care as they are hiding a gorgeous sedum and a few pinks. I'm thinking that pruning will just make them grow stronger. We'll see. Tinna wanted to go out to the store so we ended up going to Home Depot. I was after a bird bath for the rose garden but I didn't find one that wasn't made of concrete. I've seen a blue glass one in a catalog so I guess I'll just have to order it...that's kind of what my mind is set on now. At HD, I picked up a few more sun-loving plants for the bee & butterfly garden and also a few impatiens for in the shade garden at the front of the house. I also got a red bell pepper plant. Oh, yeah, and I put the three tomato plants into the herb garden today so we'll see how they do there. Phew!
I spun for awhile this afternoon and evening and finished up Liudwih's Plötulopi. Now I just have to use my nostepinde to get it into center-pull balls for her. Yay. Then it's on to some of the roving. I'm still knitting on the Truly Tasha shawl here and there but I'm not as gung-ho as I had been. It's too nice to get outside when the sun is shining! I just cannot get enough of our yard. I really love this house and property and I'm very happy here. I have a lot of ideas for what I'd like to see happen and I really hope we can stay here forever.
MD Sheep & Wool is in two days! Woo-hoo! I'm hoping I get to meet some of my Ravelry buddies on Saturday. I also saw on the schedule that Maggie Sansone is playing at the fest on Saturday...how lucky can I get!?!? I'll be grabbing any of her CDs that I don't already have.
