Foiled again by the rain and cold and wind. Will all that I planted yesterday survive the possible frost tonight? Finally made myself do some gardening work yesterday after a long bike ride. Much needs to be done though I tell myself I really didn't do a whole lot here last year until June and things looked fine. What was I doing instead? The workmen finally had left The Albatross so I spent a week scrubbing and fixing things up to prepare it for the market. This involved a lot of gardening. I see the buyers aren't much into lawn care or gardening. I wish I had transplanted a lot more of my stuff as nothing is being taken care of. It's been almost 6 months since The Albatross was no longer our responsibility, such a relief even though we gave it away practically. Should not have caved to their incessant demands. Oh well, spilt milk.
Will the weather be better this afternoon for a run? Drier, warmer but with more wind. Then off to a Mom's night out.
