A New Place to Rest!
Saturday, 19 May 12 Sunny 31°C / 88°F
Today I went head on with the wild rose bush. It has to be 15 feet tall and about 10 feet in diameter. I chose to get underneath and get as much deadwood out as possible which gave me a natural hollowed out arch in the back side facing the yard. .Despite its fishing for human skin capabilities and an abandoned robins nest, with three eggs, I continued. We’ve been keeping an eye on the nest for about a week. First thing in the morning and first thing before sunset. We just haven’t seen the pair come back to care for its young hopefuls.
Continuing the project made me realize what a great spot it would be for a sitting area. Arching protection on top and at the sides. My new resting spot to take a break from working in the garden. I actually sat at it today while I worked on the Victory Garden Handbook getting ready for next week. It would be perfect if it had sound barriers for the traffic. Especially the one Harley Sportster that does not have baffles in the muffler pipes. I actually had to put my fingers in my ears as he accelerated up the hill.
It was comfortable enough to sit there for three hours while I worked, so I am happy to finally have a place to sit outside where I don’t feel everyone is staring at me driving by. I am a country girl at heart. This small town urban thing is harder than I thought it would be. Even after 10 years.
