It sometimes seems I will never finish any of my knitting or my designs. Those projects have been placed on hold… again, not just to make way for work, but also for a good cause and as a favor for a friend. No pictures forthcoming there, I prefer such things to remain anonymous (except for when I was doing Locks of Love). While this other project has been fulfilling, I am happy that I will be back on track shortly with my knitting… I can’t wait to again be working on my projects and especially the two patterns I am currently designing! And then there is food prep and also the yard-work, there is always the yard-work!
Speaking of Yard-work.
This will be a time intensive project this year.
I will attempt to reclaim this garden. I let the vanilla grass take over a bit, because a while back we had neighbors with cats that loved to nest in it… which I found adorable, so I let it spread. Now that those neighbors have moved and I no longer have those sweet, furry little reasons for allowing the grass to take over everything… I will need to carefully separate it from the other plants and hope that the other plants actually survive the process… and the transplanting. I am also going to continue to work a border-material between the actual lawn and the beds. I usually enjoy weeding, but even that grass can be a bit more aggressive than I wish to deal with… without a little help.
The vanilla grass, and anything else that doesn’t survive the afore-mentioned process will likely be recycled into a part of the water-feature we are designing for the back yard. I say ‘we,’ when in all actuality my wonderful husband is the brains behind that wonder. I just know that eventually there will be a waterfall or fountain involved, because we both want to hear the water! A waterfall will need some elevation, any elevation will require some dirt… and the yard ‘waste’ will compost quite nicely into just that ;-)
It’s a long, slow process… but an enjoyable experience none-the-less!
