I found the deck!
Hitherto (don't you just love using cool words like that?) the deck was crowded with plant-filled tables. Most of those seedlings are now out in beds where they belong. I deconstructed the tables, the hoopsters, and other cobbled together plant holders, and finally imposed a some order to all that chaos.
Enough seedling pots remained that I left a bench along the railing for them (rooted cutting from geraniums, some WS plants being held for Mom, another attempt at foxgloves from seeds, etc.)
But by and large comfortable seating can now be had with enough room to stretch out. Ah.
While sitting (and occasionally stretching) and sipping morning coffee, these bad boys come down and gobble up all the bread I toss out for the birds every morning.
It's a mixed tribe (herd?) of fox, grey and black squirrels. They chase each other around all day but in the mornings this truce is declared while they chow down. Can you find all 9?
Meanwhile, as I enjoy my coffee this morning, I pointedly avoid giving thoughts to...
Three months of rabid gardening debris tossed willy-nilly into the garage. Taking down the deck tables, etc. finally overloaded the space such that the car is living outside right now.
I think I'm going to need a lot more coffee. *woof*
