Keeping with the strategy of a photography blog that isn’t always about photography, this week is no different. In looking for projects around the house, because that’s what we’re all doing, I found a whopper. The backyard. Yikes! I have a vision but I cannot stress the yikes factor enough. As someone who doesn’t enjoy gardening, this was daunting. Was… oh I crack myself up. It is daunting. Still.
For the past few weeks its been raining, and I use that term loosely. What I should say is the sky opened up and my street turned into a veritable river. I kid you not. It moved my neighbors trash bin. (Granted it was empty, but it was one of those big, wheeled bins.) Well, the rain stopped and it’s now hot here. I realize I’ve been living in southern California for less than a year, but it’s 90° while I’m writing this. That’s bloody hot in my book! I’ve discovered the heat is particularly noticable when roto tilling long forgotten garden beds. Whew, that thing is a beast… but it did a great job. My clay-like soil is now ready to be topped with soil I can plant vegetables in. I was glad I put on sunscreen. For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed the throwback Thursday photo I posted yesterday. I almost missed the snow. Almost.
I’ve many, many more projects to tackle in the yard but I can see that vision becoming a reality. What projects are you tackling?
