I managed to pick up another book by Bernard Cornwell and had to stay up until 3:30 reading last nite; despite being tired from too much sun and exercise. Was a good day, though.
Today I spent the afternoon weeding and pruning in the Japanese/ water / moss garden. Then watering a bit at the back. I found that Shauna had left a block of cement under the cedar hedge on her side. It is exactly what I needed to put under my Japanese lantern to raise it up a bit. This block even has 4 little feet which now sit in the pea gravel of my dry stream. This block looks exactly like it was made for this application. Thank you Shauna. I don't think she will miss it. It is all looking good. Except the vegetable garden. Too many tree roots and not enough sun.
