|This is the area I featured in an earlier Tell-the-Truth-Tuesday post. Since then, I've pulled out some of the succulents, moved the smaller Yucca 'Blue Boy', and added low-growing Festuca glauca. I was going to reorient the half-buried blue pot and plant some new succulents - but meh. I'm tempted to remove all the succulents except the Agave colorata but the green Aeonium haworthii matches plants growing in another bed a foot away...Deliberations continue.|
I won't even discuss the work in process to cut back the dead ivy and honeysuckle on the back slope. So why am I having such trouble getting anything done? Blustery winds made it difficult to do anything outside for a couple of days now but that's a temporary impediment. The same is true of a new plant delivery.
|A mail order delivery I'd largely forgotten about arrived last night|
The newly delivered plants need to go into the ground. I haven't planted those I picked up at a local Spring plant sale yet either. So what's really diverting my attention? Here are some clues:
|One of my rain barrels has been moved and tucked "out of the way" into a corner of the garden|
|"Unobtrusive" conduit has been installed to provide power to the area on the other side of the fence|
|And this messy area is the future site of a "temporary" kitchen|
Our remodel, which will involve gutting our kitchen, pushing out a wall, installing a new HVAC system, new flooring, and an earthquake retrofit, among other things, is expected to kick off late next month. Maybe. We've had a long series of delays of one kind and another already. Today we learned that we need to bring in an environmental remediation team to remove asbestos. Fun.
