Richards sister Carol was here for a couple of days at the end of May. We had a nice visit and hope she can come back soon. Then in June we had a few good friends out for a barbecue....getting a bit too hot for that now. Next came the red hatters and today was the local Pond Tour.
I am through with most of the garden work except for maintenance like weeding and watering, let me tell you that takes enough time. I am continuing to work on the miniature garden, adding more people, cars, horses, roads and the like. I will try and post new pictures of it soon.
All the watering combined with the drought and we have water woes. We do not have rural water and use a well, we also have a cistern but it leaks right now and needs repair. Richard has had to haul water a number of times and finally had enough, we will be getting rural water soon. Work on that starts this Monday. I will have to cut some of the milkweed and will try starting new plants with cuttings, hope it works. Once the rural water is hooked up we will have two water systems, the well and cistern for garden use and rural water for the house. I will be doing laundry at home again!
