I can't believe how many people were having a nice day walking their dogs and seeing my mess. There was this sweet older man who was using his walker and he had his whole
family walking with him encouraging him.He stopped to rest for a scond and see what I was doing.There is nothing like working on your front yard garden to get your neighbors to wave and smile.Even if you don't know them.
I had a nice neighbor lady around the corner from me a couple days ago walk by my house while walking her dog. I was weeding closer to my deck and so she couldn't see me.
Barbara said to me "Cheri I know your in there , I just wanted to tell you I love your back in Crest"
(Barbara also has chickens ) That sure made me feel good!
|I don't like the eucalyptus next to the fence and they're on my list to go!|
at least cut to the top rail of the fence. Then they can be a little privacy screen.
Living on a dirt road that get pot holes everyone throws the ice plant or leaves in the road and in a couple of days it’s flattened and the road stays flat. So I would toss over the ice plant that was heavy then rake it onto the road.
I have a good chunk of ice plant off the fence and I know this week I’ll be able to get the rest of the ice plant off the fence.
Why is it that I can only grow the plants that are annoying they thrive but the others it's me against nature.
|Do you know how thick heavy wet ice plant is?|
Southern California is a Mediterranean climate and so we get mild winters so to me this is kind of like spring . We don’t get snow for Christmas which would be nice and to us a rainy day or a cool day for Christmas is as close as we’ll get. Today it feels like a Santa Ana because it’s warm and the wind is blowing like crazy!

That's a climbing rose behind my daisy plant.
This is what ice plant looks like
The door just blew open again as I am writing this post.
Back to work. Cheri
