I found these brand new Gardening Gloves in the local charity shop for $1.50, although the original price sticker says 3.95 UK Pounds. Is that Inspector Clouseau admiring the flowers on his day off?
Lots of jobs to get started on... here's the compost. The pile on the right has been fermenting for a couple of years and is ready to be sifted and spread on the flower beds. Then a new brick container will be built. The pile on the left is last year's compost, ready to be covered with soil and left for another year. It contains grass clippings, all the household veggie waste, coffee filters, eggshells, everything that can be broken down into compost.
Winter isn't very kind to my flower beds. This one is just starting to wake up, and obviously needs lots of TLC.
But at least the rhubarb is starting to sprout. It only takes a couple of warm days and everything starts going crazy, and making up for lost time!
The Space Cadet spent the afternoon cleaning out the winter debris that accumulates in the garage, and fixing some discarded computers that he got from a friend. So we took a well deserved break on the patio, and celebrated the (rather late) return of Spring with a glass of wine. Look closely, Spot was out there too!
