The Bee Hive

Sometimes it's honey; sometimes it's sting...

Today was a good 'at home' day. This morning, as I often do, I woke up with my giant cup of coffee in front of the TV playing Harvest Moon Animal Parade on the Wii. When I was sufficiently awake to face the world, I cleaned up the kitchen, set some meat out to thaw for dinner and then went out to the garden. I hoed and raked my little garden plot, and planted a package of mixed varieties of eggplant. I had planned to plant another packet of eggplant, but then couldn't decide between that and some of the two varieties of cantalope that Glenda brought me when she and Jan came recently. Right now, I am thinking of going with the cantalope, but may change my mind again...
Later in the day, I spray painted a bottomless metal chair that I use as a flowerbed feature, and two metal people that hold flowerpots. I should have taken a photo of those, but didn't think of it at the time. Now it's too dark to get a decent photo, I think. Mathieu was here and he wanted to make a Zen dish garden like I made a few days ago. His turned out sort of half zen and half something else, but it looks good! Mine has too many rocks, I know, but it's hard to stop at just 1-3, for me. ;) Mat scattered lots of small rocks throughout his sand, and then added a small yogurt cup pond, too, and went around the edges of the dish with clover leaves.
