    • My please, Denise. You guys always write such good stuff, and I have a special fondness for quotations of all sorts. Especially those that inspire us. Thanks for such a great post! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • You’re welcome, Jill. And thanks for the kind words about my birthday week. It was a quiet one, for the most part, but yesterday and today, Mark and I worked really hard in the yard, planting a new hedge. It was worth the labor, though, if it does as well as I think it will. I’m tired now, but it’s a good kind of tired, you know? Here’s to a good week ahead! ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. I’ve loved all of these posts, Marcia! Hedge planting sounds like the sort of exercise that makes you aware of every muscle at the end of it all! Glad you felt so good when it was done. โค

  2. It was a good week on both of these blogs, wasn’t it, Trish? I enjoyed them, too.

    And since I just crawled out of bed (and I mean that almost literally) I can attest to hedge planting having a very painful aftermath. I probably won’t be around much today. Not only am I struggling with painful everything, but I stepped into a large bed of fire ants that was hidden beneath the old mulch. They swarmed up over my feet before I knew it and I have twenty or thirty bites on each foot.

    For those who don’t know, fire ants are particularly vicious critters. Not content to just bite you like a regular ant, they bend double while hanging on with their mandibles and sting you at the same time. The bites turn into nasty sores that take two or three weeks to go away, and hurt AND itch the entire time. GAH!!!

    But hey! We have a new hedge that I hope will grow for us and be beautiful. ๐Ÿ˜† More on this and a few other things in a catch-up post later.

      • I’ve tried, but fire ants don’t even belong here. They are invasive to the extreme, and since I grew up in a Florida that didn’t have them, I HATE that they are here now. They have spread across a large part of the U.S. and can be fatal when they swarm over small animals. You really have to be careful with little kids, too. They are awful, and we’ve had the worst year for them in our yard I’ve ever experienced. I refuse to have my whole yard saturated in pesticide, but trying to keep track of the beds to spot treat them is almost impossible. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿคฌ

        • I’m afraid I’d want to eradicate them anyway I could. Look after those bites of yours – in fact, just look after all of you! <3<3

          • Thanks, Trish! I have some powder and some spray I can use on individual ant beds, but I have too many cool critters in my yard and garden to spray the entire place wholesale. But it’s tempting after something like yesterday. I don’t think I’ve ever had this many bites at one time. They are FIENDS. Minions of Evil!! But I’m treating the bites (first with hydrocortisone to help ease the itching). And I’m looking after the rest of me by having a very EASY day today. (I was going to go plant a few more things since it’s blessedly cooler out. (Yesterday was 90 degrees!) But now I’m just going to work on some easy stuff. And maybe even write for the first time in several weeks. Yeah, that’d be fun!
