With the news of upcoming heavy rain my first concern of the day was to clean all of the rain gutters, they are full of debris from our giant redwood. MeMe came out and joined me when I got to the second story gutters, she insisted on holding the ladder. Next door the “Crazy Cat Lady hissed a loud ,“What are you doing?” that caused me to grab the ladder and give a shudder of fear. MeMa talked to her while holding the ladder, I on the other hand finished the job and carefully got down to solid ground. The next thing I found out was “we” have volunteered to clean C.C.L.’s gutters as well......hisssss!
|Hibiscus bloom lasted two days.|
|The neighbor said she will come over and take care of the greenhouse which is one duty that won't survive uncared for.|
During surgery which will last four hours I will have to wait in the car, thank you Covid. Her Doctor will call my cell phone as soon as she is in recovery. Our eldest son Nathan will be with me keeping close watch on the mental state of this old gardener.
|Lucky for this old gardener the rain will take care of most of the watering.|
|The "Yuma Garden" will have been moved back into its winter quarters in the greenhouse.|
