This is what a roof rake looks like. It has come in very handy. I’m getting a lot of needlework and painting done in these long, cold nights. My cactus seeds sprouted into 7 little cacti so far. Still holding back on the major seed starting but I can’t resist starting a few early trays. I planted some blue hyssop. The bees love it but really I’ve planted it for my friend Arthur. When I had my shop, he would cycle in a mile or so every day to visit me . On his 80th birthday, he brought in a cassette player and some big band music and asked me to have a birthday dance with him. He loved Blue Hyssop. It will bring happy memories and good energy to my garden.
