Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger and Glimmer.

Mum has been bizzy at day hunting this week, so not getting a huge amount of stuff done outside. But where all of the old icky plants were she is salvaging some of the old lava rocks to use again.
 Mum takes here big old shovel and scoops up rocks and dirt.
 The she puts them in this thing. It is a part of an old litter box. The dirt falls through and back on the ground.
 Mum dumps them in an empty litter container and then....
 Starts with another shovel full. Here so can sort of see the openings where the dirt will fall out.
 Then once the bucket was full mum dumped it in back by the AC unit. This will keep weeds and stuff from growing since the dirt is hidden below.
 Here is the back, mum laid it on nice and thick.
 Glimmer reporting. Looks good so far but she needs more rocks to finish the other side and front. She needs to get cracking here!
Oh and while we were inspecting, we noticed a big wasp nest up in the tree! you can biggify the picture and the next is where all of the big limbs come together. It isn't attached there, but it looks that way. Mum all the pest control peoples. They will take care of it next visit. Don't see many wasp fly around.

Oh, we need at least one flower picture! One of our day lillies!
That is it for this week. Love Virginer and Glimmer.

There is so much back breaking work to do when you own a house. Your mom does a great job keeping up with it all!

We had one of those wasp's nests 'way up in the tree, so we didn't know it was there until autumn when the leaves fell! Really creeped me out that it was there, and I was walking under it and all that, but I didn't know! Actually beautiful construction, when you get up close when there aren't any wasps around...

Whoa, that's a HUGE wasp nest! Where we live, the wasps make tiny little nests, so that's scary-looking!

I think you two are excellent snoopervisors.

Your mum sure has been busy. That looks like hard work moving all that lava rock.
