One basket carried my two trowels and the delicious basil which almost ended up in the front courtyard but didn't.
See the cool walking stick? Created by Daddooooo for our first Chanukah in Marin, I've decided that it is the perfect tool for this next stage of getting well. It's really and truly mine:
There's my S in brass studs.
The petunias are holding their own in the heat, though I imagine that they will be replaced by vinca before the Spring is over. There are two in the front with the petunias and one in this sunshine pot I brought with me from Marin.
Concert Pal gave me these before she left for the summer. I'm not up to getting them into the ground right now; getting down onto the ground myself is still an issue. So, for now, they sit to the side of the front hardscape, enjoying their plastic pots and mocking me. I'll get there soon enough.
I moved around to the back yard and the raised veggie garden.
The basil and mini-yellow peppers went in after I finished working on the irrigation tubing.
The tomato plants start out with these pretty little flowers
and they turn into these little beauties
Despite my brother's protestations to the contrary, these are not Michael Pollan's $80 tomatoes. These grape and yellow pear varieties will provide Mr. 5 and me with endless afternoons of snacking as we harvest and watch MOTG's handmade hummingbird feeder.
I might not be able to load 20 pounds of potting soil onto my garden cart, but I had a pretty successful day in spite of myself.
