Looking Up

Which I will be doing very shortly lying on my back with my eyes closed.

Cause liftin' and totin' and stackin' rocks on the side of a hill can wear a person out.

I also got to plant the Daffodil/Narcissus that came in the wonderful box of goodies that Hank from A Lake County Point of View was so incredibly kind to send me. More details on that later. This box was packed full of treats.

Today I planted:
Narcissus 'Golden Ducat', a double Daffodil
Narcissus poeticus 'Green Pearl'
Narcissus 'Odorus Linnaeus' (Campernelli) and
Narcissus triandrus 'Lemon Drops'

Tomorrow I'll get to plant some Squill, Puschkinia scilloides var. libanotica.

And stack some more rocks and tote some more buckets of gravel.

But for now it is lights out.

I bet you are very worn out! You'll find that fresh, cold air will contribute to your fatigue, and also help you sleep very soundly. I like that 'Green Pearl' narcissus...planted some myself. That wall sure is coming along nicely...at least the hard work is paying off! Looking forward to your spring pictures for sure!

Hank is really excellent. He told me several weeks ago he was going to send you some stuff and made me promise not to tell, which is very hard for me to do, but I did it!

That rock wall looks excellent. Take lots of pictures and show them to prospective clients/employers. But then you'll be building rock walls all the time. Are these rocks all from your land? Because how nice to find so many of the same kind suitable for the same purpose.
