Watered the plants around the patio. Hostas with their quilted texture are my favorite foliage.
The Lady's Mantle is full of buds, and the leaves collect the morning dew.
Hauled the camellia and lilac prunings to the burn pile.
Weeded and mulched the hollyhock border.
Counted the buds on the pink double peony... there are forty one!
Filled the bird feeders in the orchard, an everyday chore.
