Com Post

Sunday we got up to 90 degrees here. Church wasn’t hot, but by the time we got home from grocery shopping the air had warmed up a fair amount. After lunch I spent ten whole minutes in the backyard snapping old hosta shoots off the plants, but that’s it. I thought about raking but decided that those dead leaves can stay there until ….. well, they can just stay there. It’s natural mulch, right?

Believe it or not, this is an 'after' shot. It looks just like the 'before' shot.

Lloyd waited until it was good and hot to spend his minutes outside. Fool. I tagged along to document.

The compost has become dirt again. I believe the last time it was used was four years ago. Lloyd dug some of it out and filled in some low spots around the yard.

Looks like a shallow grave, doesn't it?

That hole is where the basketball hoop used to be, but dirt just keeps sinking into it. Do you think it might be a secret passage to China? If so, we are going to regret plugging it up with old leaves.

    I was curious, so I went looking. If that sink hole did go through to the other side of the planet, it would be somewhere in the southern part of the Indian Ocean.

    I think you should keep that plugged with old leaves.

    For the record, I do not think I put enough “dirt” in the hole. After I put some grass seed in it and watered it, it was still a hole.

    90 degrees, DANG! I’m not ready for those temperatures! (or were you just kidding about that?)

    I think your hosta area looks lovely! It’s green! It’s non-wilty! That’s a winner in my book.

    (Btw: Lauren have you been watching Frozen Planet? It comes on the Discovery channel on Sunday nights at 8pm. You may just want to listen to it. Recognize that voice?
