Day Old Stroll

Somehow I got behind in my pictures. This is yesterday. Today's stroll will be different and come later. I really walk slow now.

Geranium, Hosta and Bloodroot.

Blazing Star, Dodecatheon meadia, blue pot and kitties.

All kind stuff creates a scene.

Tulips and Loosestrife, Lysimachia ciliata.

St. Frances with pink rhododendron.

Clashing azaleas watch the cars go by.

A brief rest during the romp.

Very, very red.

More very very red in the distance.

Looking closely at a pink rhododendron.

Bluebell Hill

They are peaking in places.

Dame's Rocket, Hesperis matronalis comes in several shades.

I will be working for clients everyday this week and most likely everyday next week, weathers depending. It's like I am fully employed now. How did that happen?

I am now a familiar face at the nice local nursery and the nursery man says give me your card and I can get you plenty of work. Not just yet please. I have a cabin to finish and my days are already full.

Hi Christopher! Spring has truly sprung at your place. It is truly amazing! Walk slowly and stop often! Kitties look like they are gaining weight ~ they were lucky to find you. They look so happy and content.

Thanks for sharing!

Lovely walk in the woods there. Good to feel needed isn't it. My handyman work is nicely backlogged too.

Lola said...

Lots of pretties to see on a slow leisurely stroll. Kitties seem to enjoy it also.
Full time, not bad, just makes you tired but it's a nice tiredness. Just think it's what you love to do & the $$$ aren't bad either.

Hooray for full employment! Just go back to your posts on tragic underemployment and you'll feel better. But yes, a place to live has priority.
Absolutely lovely garden. You are blessed.

I am glad I can stop worrying about you not working enough, paid work that is.

Siria, Collar lost her big wide belly. Don't know why so I am watching to see if she starts getting skinny. Crawford is definitely filling out now.

You are welcome Gina. The kitties and I do enjoy our evening stroll.

Randy I have had a few people hint at me doing handyman work after seeing the cabin I built. I think I'll stick to gardening. Then again handyman work could be a winter income.

Lola it is odd that working just as hard here on the mountain does not seem to tire me as much as work for others.

Lisa don't stop worrying. I could fall and break a hip.

Lola said...

Christopher, don't even think about breaking ANYTHING. It is no fun.
Sorry, I just am sensitive about things like that.
