Since it rained until late yesterday evening, I think I got a good bit done. I set up and planted my fan grate yesterday evening. I kinda messed up assembling it. I got the pole on the crosspiece stuck and it didn't go down on the pipe as far as I would have liked. Once the spagnum moss, dirt and plants were in it was heavy. I hope the pipe does not bend, it is 1/2 inch copper pipe. Copper is soft. Pics as soon as DD gets back with the camera.
Today, I planted two containers for Mom, repotted her mini rose we got her for Easter, and set up my big half whiskey barrel planter after Richard drilled the holes in it . I need some more packing peanuts to fill it in partially so it won't use so much dirt. I also put a large plastic pot upside down in the bottom. The plants I am putting in it just don't need that much root room.
I did some weeding around the spot where I have the fan grate and barrel set up. There is a gate that leads to nowhere, on one side of it I have pinecone ginger, which is just peeping through the soil, and shell ginger planted. On the other side I am putting alternanthera "party time" and pink begonias. I have the barrel and fan grate on either end. I will also plant around the pipe for the fan grate, probably torenia. It should be a nice spot when finished. I had to dig two beauty berry bushes up that were volunteers. We have them all over. I also got one of my yellow hibiscus planted. I think that is all, all I can remember anyway.

Your ginger sounds interesting. I love ginger tea when I have a migraine, are those types something you can make tea with?

I'm really looking forward to seeing photographs of the fan grate and the whiskey barrel planter.

Sounds like a very productive day Sharon. I'm still waiting for spring to arrive :(

Mary, I don't think these are used for making tea. They are ornamental.
Kat, I went back to work today and it was beautiful. I have off Sat and Sun. Guess what, it is going to start raining Fri. night.
As soon as DD gets back I'll take pics. Of course the weather will have to co-operate too.

thank you for visiting my blog.
I guess it is always greener but I would love to exchange homes with you. I always thought it would be nice to exchange homes for a holiday with another cat person, but Rudi would have been less shocked if I told him I bought a chinese plot on the moon. Where do you keep your photos?

Aloes, here is a link to my photobucket album you will, of course, have to click on the one that says "animals." Not all of the cats are on there. Most were on another site but we lost them when the computer crashed.
