We spent a great deal of time on the yard this weekend and are having a lot of trouble getting our underground irrigation/sprinkler system to work. I guess we'll have to end up calling someone to come out and look at it. We were trying to water our yard with our rain barrel water and I was taking some from my watering can over to the little area between the sidewalk and the street. The area around the stop sign looked awfully dry so I was watering that area when I heard someone yell "The sign, it doesn't grow at all!" Our neighbor, Pete, was in his yard and laughing at how it really looked like I was watering the stop sign. I guess it did seem funny. I ended up cutting all of the blooming roses off of the rose bushes and with some help of the boxwood as a filler, I made three large arrangements in vases.
I work this M, Tu, Wed and then my parents are visiting Wed evening through Monday morning (when I have to go back to work). So, I'm sure I'll be posting photos from their visit as well. I will also write a follow up on the politics post, but things are so crazy busy right now, that I just don't have the time to sit down and do some thorough research. But I'll try my hardest to get that up. Have a great week, everyone!
