A little more settling in

Sunday morning started out gloomy, but we went out for pancakes and then to Home Depot.  And then the sun came out!  We bought a little reel-type lawn mower for our postage stamp lawn, a rake, and a dandelion puller (because we have WEEDS and many of them are dandelions).  I’m not crazy about having to do yard work again, but there’s really not much.  John mowed the back and front of the house in about 5 minutes Sunday afternoon.


Then he re-potted our avocado plant,  because yes, we drove across the country with an avocado plant in our car, and we want it to grow big and strong.

The old pot is in the background.  Perspective is making it look smaller than it really is.

Sadly, the little hedgehog pot-hugger dude doesn’t fit on our new pot.  We’ll have to figure out somewhere else to put him.

Here are a couple of shots of our backyard, for the curious.  Not so surprisingly, it looks a lot like it did the last time I posted a picture of it.  Not as wet this time, and you can see flowers in the bed over near the shed in the second picture that weren’t there in February.



Our stuff is coming tomorrow!  YAY!

    If it makes you feel any better, we have a potted stick that used to be an Avacado that we keep out of nostalgia.

    I still have an avocado with roots but no stem or leaves. I think the cold house stunted its growth. You may need to feed yours: the leaves look a little sickly. Probably from the trauma of moving.

    What’s that shape of gray in your backyard? Gravel?

    Yup, it’s gravel. The avocado plant is John’s responsibility. I don’t do so well with green things. I overwater. Or underwater. And I don’t care that much. 🙂
