Pulled a lot of cheap grass today before it started dropping those horrible seeds.  Not much rain here for a while now.  I need to turn my outside water on so I can give the garden enough water.

Daniel, I very much like your meditation garden.

Kathy, sorry for the tough time your having.

Kathy -- I'm also very sorry to learn of what you're going through and wish you the best.

I, too, have identical iris's and a rhodadendron, Daniel. So beautiful.

We had 3" of rain over the weekend. A tornado touched down 10 miles away! Farm fields are flooded. Fortunately, my one acre is on a mound, so water drains away. However, the water table is very high and my basement sump pump is getting a workout. My house water comes from the original farm well--over 100 years old. I keep wondering how much longer it will last. I don't know how deep the well is. It's never run dry.

After all the rain, I tried pulling garden weeds yest. It was too wet--soil clung to the roots and wouldn't shake off.

I also mowed half my lawn. The tractor started right up--a surprise since I've been having trouble getting it started. Battery and connections are good (after much work). I'm thinking it's the starter, but I'm no mechanic. It might be time for a new mower. The current one is 20 years old. Hmmm.

Daniel, your photos reflect your calm, peaceful nature and your sweet care of living things and beautiful memorial to your dog. 

I don't think I read of Charlie's passing and assume you pay tribute to Baigou.

Your flowers look perfect. I can almost smell them.

Your Running Ducks look so cute. They will bring you much pleasure, I am sure. I wonder if they breed like rabbits; so many videos shows huges flocks of Running Ducks going to work. Here is just one

Daniel, the first photo, from the top, looks so much like the view of the yard at the left of my driveway it's eerie.

Thanks for the kind words folks. As we all know life can be harsh at times.

Wow, I didn't know, Kathy. Sorry to hear your news.

Joan, I can imagine how hard it was to part with your home of 41 years. I've been in mine for 40 and dread the day I have to leave. I just may not!

Spud, lots of luck moving all those chips! Holy cow! Personally, I've never been a fan of using them. I have my reasons.

And Daniel, I hope you know I'm just kidding around. I take few things seriously. And I certainly defer to your expertise.

Very heavy work, Kathy! I'm sorry to hear that you have such a burden. I do hope you two have some quality time together.

Kathy, I am sorry to learn of your challenges! I know there are no words or deeds that can ease your trials. I, and we at A/N stand with you and have strong shoulders if you need a place to vent or regeneate. I'm glad you have gardening as an interest. Being in touch with the soil seems to put things in perspective. 

I hope your husband is able to be comfortable and peaceful. My thought remain with you.
