So, anyway, here's the list I made, with my progress so far:
• Buy some forsythias, and
I took a ride down the road to Agway, but they didn't have any. I even went to Wal*Mart. No luck, either. I finally went back to the Depot. They'd had them last week for $16, exactly the size I wanted. I still didn't any, so I asked someone. Sold out. Rats. They did have some inexpensive small-leaved rhododendrons, the same variety as the ones in front of my picture windows. I got two small ones at $6 each, and the two larger ones for $12. I think the larger one are maybe a year older. I planted one small one at the head of my driveway, and the others went every 20' just inside the property line between my back yard, and the frat boys back yard (the gray house in the photo). I was also able to use the turf rounds I dug up to patch a couple of spots in the lawn, so everybody wins. When I finally do find some forsythia, they'll go in between the rhododendrons. It'll be pretty, if'n I can ever find some. There's still another Depot to try, and also a Lowes. Maybe tomorrow morning.
Saturday and Sunday:
• Weed and feed lawn, in (no doubt) vain attempt to kill off dandelions. Has to be done in the morning when there's still some dew on the lawn. Postponed. Dandelion killer needs to physically sit on the plants in the sun for a couple days to work properly. Applying when rain is expected is just throwing away good money. (If it's sunny tomorrow, I'm gonna be tres annoyed.)
• Turn over tomato patch, and plant tomato and muskmelon seedlings. It looks like I have one decent melon seedling. Other than that, I'm gonna have to get some.
• Prune low-hanging branches on Bradford pears and evil thicket. Remember not to stand under branches while cutting them.
• Go around yard with weed whacker.
Now, I'm showered, tired, and basking in the sunshine at my desk. Thinking about going to see HHGttG, but I'm worried about falling asleep in the theatre. Need to do something. I'm getting hungry.
