Down But Not Out
I had a bit of a lazy day today. The photo is taken while lying on the lawn. I'm not feeling A1 as I ate garlic and cheese last night, a double whammy on my sensitive system. I knew what I was getting into but I always hope for a chance that I won''t be affected but that never happens. I needed a quiet day anyway after the intense gardening yesterday. I was exhausted as I thought I might be but got a lot done.
The tulips are blooming now. I lost a lot of them to mice over the winter. It is easy to find the damage. There were tunnels in the garden and many, many empty tulip bulb husks. It worked out well actually. There was a tulip disease in the garden and I was supposed to pull the affected tulips. I really didn't have the heart to do it but I see no sign of the disease this year. The mice possibly ate all the diseased bulbs.
Lay Down ( Candles In the Rain) was an old favorite from the early seventies by Melanie Safka, generally known as Melanie. It was up there on the charts. Hit The Ground by Lizz Wright is not as old but it's as good.
Back to work tomorrow so I'll see you Monday.
