We opened about half of our water features yesterday. This year the fountain has a new pump and lights and it's working better than ever before. Notice the dead boxwoods in my hedgerow? A whole clump of them died out of nowhere and I have no idea why. Has anyone else had this happen?
The first day of the pool being open is never pretty. Look at all of that pollen floating on the top too. I have to power wash the coping. We have an automatic cover that hasn't worked in years but we will be replacing it soon as a safety measure for Winnie.
"Why is there a large body of water in my garden?"
With all of the heat and rain we have had, the beds are filling in quickly.
I continue to trim the goddamn boxwoods.
I'm cutting grass about every 4 days.
The planters are filling in nicely too.
The cistern is running. This circulates rain water collected from the roof.
My old black locusts are still dropping blossoms.
My bay trees are putting out tons of new growth. One of them almost didn't make wintering over inside but it is back and as robust as ever.
