"No sunrise this morning. Looks like it might have rained. Rather go back to bed, but I have to pickup a bag of items and drop other bag into Foodbank box. Maybe when I get back home will go back to bed. Could be weather change and or wasp stings…"
"Plus tree stumps and roots still there. Plus three deadish walnut trees and the last sick-a-more have to go. Oh and the ugly trailer. Site is having a hard time getting my pics so giving up. It is 1:30I fell asleep earlier.

Thanks to all for the welcome. Today is Tuesday, March 5th, and Nashville, Tenn., has been experiencing cold, intermittant rain and snow.

Two-thirds of the backyard is flowers and relaxing area, a third for fruit and vegetables. Planning to grow more vegetables this year, so turning grass space into raised beds. Have a bank of blackberries along the north side of the back yard, and three heavily producing fig trees, with raspberries in between two of the fig trees. Three compost pits form the eastern edge of the vegetable garden, along with an old potting shed that needs to be replaced.

Lots to do, but I'm bless, and I love being in the garden. Always feel closer to my God there.
