Mowing

‍‍כט סיון ה תשסט - Saturday, June 20th, 2009

I pulled some more weeds and did a little bit of directed watering on the new flowers planted yesterday. Randy, my father-in-law,¬†was nice enough to mow our lawn and to work on the edges of the grass against the walkways in the front of the house. He was out there working with a manual trimmer […]

Garden

‍‍כח סיון ה תשסט - Friday, June 19th, 2009

Kelli and Will came over to dig in our dirt. In honor of Dana’s birthday, they pulled a bunch of lingering weeds from the patch just in front of the house and planted a number of perennials. They also were kind enough to put the plant I received as a gift into the ground. It’s […]

Watering

‍‍כח סיון ה תשסט - Friday, June 19th, 2009

When I got up this morning I went out and did the morning watering. I did a bit longer than normal (30 minutes each side) because I knew I would not likely do any more watering during the weekend. I also knew that our friends,¬†Kelli & Will, would be coming by to plant some flowers […]

Watering

‍‍כז סיון ה תשסט - Thursday, June 18th, 2009

Got up this morning and did the morning watering. I also took the yard waste from the front out to the trash and found that someone had dumped a bunch of branches in our car-park. They didn’t even have the courtesy to cut them down into small enough pieces that the garbage men would be […]

Watering

‍‍כו סיון ה תשסט - Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

When I got up this morning I did the morning watering. I’m so excited about the roses (despite the cuts and scrapes they inflicted). I’m starting to think they need a trellis… they’re getting too tall for the garden steaks I’ve got in there. Right now I’m sort of forcing them to wind back and […]

Watering

‍‍כה סיון ה תשסט - Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

The rain streak might have finally broken. It didn’t appear as though the yard got much rain this past day or two so I decided to water this morning. 20 minutes per side. I also did a tiny bit more rose bush trimming and pulled some weeds and shrooms. Looks like a little bit of […]

Tornado Warning

‍‍כג סיון ה תשסט - Sunday, June 14th, 2009

A tornado warning was just issued for Denver County. It isn’t even raining near our house right now but apparently it is raining in northwest Denver. It isn’t on for very long but we could hear the emergency sirens from the school down the street.

Rain

‍‍כג סיון ה תשסט - Sunday, June 14th, 2009

More rain. At this rate, I may never have to water again. Famous last words. This one isn’t particularly powerful so it may not last that long.

Mowing

‍‍כג סיון ה תשסט - Sunday, June 14th, 2009

Finally tackled the backyard. Got the jungle mowed down to a more reasonable height. I also pulled a bunch of weeds and did some serious prunning of the 4th of July Roses along the garage. Despite my cuts from the thorns it was totally worth it. It looks so much better. I also got the […]

Rain

‍‍כב סיון ה תשסט - Saturday, June 13th, 2009

Because it rained yesterday and because it was supposed to rain this evening I decided not to water this morning. Good thing. Tonights storm is intense: Hail, flooding, etc. Even though we cleared the down-spouts already once this season it looks like they are blocked again. Also, one of the down spots in the front […]
