Pepper Power Here.
I'm not actually sure what Mom is doing while she is out doing yardwork. I do the same stuff sniffing around in the weeds, walking on the ground watering the lawn, fertilizing the garden, and haven't quite figured out what she is doing.
I don't fill up buckets with perfectly green plants and work up a sweat over mowing the yard. I've sat at the top of the hill, next to her, on the deck, under the Japanese Maple, under rhodies & azaleas. No matter where I sit I just don't understand dragging all that water around to water all those plants I can't even get to because they have fences around them. Those ones attached to the house under the windows I've never even sniffed and they get attention every day.
I do appreciate the dog doo pick up every day and watering the yard so it stays cool and grass like. Ice cubes in the water are fun to grab and run back into the house with.
That water spitter that sprays up the yard and goes back to the beginning again time after time after time again - not so thrilled with that beast. I like the one that spins and has a butterfly in the middle. Who wouldn't like a sprinkler with a pappillon spinning in all it's beauty? Ok - it's a butterfly I admit and not the dog version, but you have to work with what you have.
Well off to watch the deck flowers get watered. This takes a while as well - and then she will be out front. Mom says we need rain - so someone please send it.
Pepper Power Out.
