There is an abundance of butterflies in the waning days of summer. I don't know if they lay eggs that overwinter or if the last batch of caterpillars pupate over winter or both. Their numbers tell me they are up to something.
The roadside vegetable garden is slowing down. The last to get going 'Juliet' tomatoes that came up on their own are still in high gear and just look at one of my strawberry patches. It promises a berrylicious spring.
And because I can, I seeded another crop of corn with a due date of October 15th, also our first average annual frost date. It is coming along quickly. The sunflowers are now bird food, minus a big sack of seeds for next year, and the gold finches spend their days in the vegetable garden.
Ta da! I have reached the top of the shower. All the tile that can be tiled is done tiled.
It's near perfect. In that top left side corner you can see my grout lines in two of the cap tiles are a bit wider than the surrounding tiles. There was a 1/4 inch difference in width from one end to the other necessitating a cut and I cut a hair too much off those top two tiles. Oh well. I did it all myself. The white grout will help make it disappear I am sure.
That blank spot on the right side wall will get filled in after the glass block goes in.
Next comes the grout. Then I will put the soap dish and shampoo shelf on. I wanted to make sure to get grout in the joints that those will cover over.
Once that is done I may make like Crawford for the week and splurge on numerous naps.
And there will be wandering about and garden touring.
Perhaps I will even pull a few weeds.
