Trying to build a wattle fence

My wattle fence didn't turn out so good.  Looks like I need help!! :)  I planted a few pole beans around it anyway.  We'll see what happens.  Maybe in two weeks or so there will be a few vines...

I've rooted so many many Hostas.  I had planned to sell them at the farmer's market along with the bonnets and aprons but I'm not doing the market anymore.  I have given Hostas to all the neighbors... Wish I could give you all a few!  These need to be divided and re-potted...

I caught Bickett sleeping again!!!  Imagine that!!  Got to show you this .  He is so funny...
I love cats.  Daddy loved cats.  Growing up, we had a cat named "Pepper".  He would jump into the bath tub and with his paw, push the stopper into the hole.  Then meow, wanting us to run a little water in for him to drink.  Not long before daddy died, he stopped by to visit us.  Lynn and Andee were small.  Daddy said he had something for us...It was a little kitten.  He told Lynn and Andee to always make sure it had fresh water to drink.

There is quite a story about how we got Bickett.   I'll save that for another time.

A hint...I got so tired of getting to the garden and realizing I needed something.  So, I loaded down this gardening basket with everything I could possible need!!!  3 pairs of gloves, a bandana, 2 pocket knives, a tool kit, scissors, twine, seeds, a saw, pruning shears, etc.  It weight about 10 pounds, it sure helps having it with me!!

 
I didn't quite finish this post yesterday.  This morning there were several deer on the hill.  You know how hard it is to sneak up on deer!!!  They all scattered when I opened the back door except this mother and her half grown baby.  Wish I could have gotten closer...
Again, if you've stayed this long, thank you!!

Love,

Henny Penny

  1. Dear Henny,
    I must confess, I'm not entirely sure exactly a wattle fence should look like, but yours looks quite capable. Hat tip to you for accomplishing the wattle fence. Ta-da!

    Bickett is a cut'ems. As a little girl I always felt it looked like cats wore velvet gloves. Can you see it?

    Your garden basket is a triumph of efficiency. *Note to self*: Make garden basket!

    We had a little female cardinal on the trampoline pole this morning. Waiting, just waiting. Perhaps she was soaking up the sunshine. It was a welcome sight.

    Have a good weekend.

    Love,
    Jen

    1. Dear Jen,

      Here it Sunday night. Hope you had a good weekend! Hope you had a warm sunny weekend. Looks like we're in for several cloudy, rainy days. Now that the garden is planted we could use a shower of rain.

      I can see the velvet gloves on Bickett. Bickett has big feet anyway!!

      Thank you. I always enjoy your comments.

      Love

  2. Dear Henny,
    We had a glorious weekend. It was the neighborhood garage sale and the weather was perfect! I may have even gotten the tiniest bit of a sunburn on my fair skin. *smile*

    I have one of the four shelf green houses like Lynn's and it made its outdoor debut this week. The last of the snow is melting, although I heard a rumor there could be more later in the week. Really?! We're gaining on it at any rate.

    I'd enjoy hearing the story of how Bickett got his name. Is it from a work of literature, Dickens, perhaps?

    Love,
    Jen

    1. Dear Jen,
      I'm so glad you had a good, sunny weekend! Wish I could have been at the garage sale!! Like Lynn, I love thrift stores and garage sales. I'm not as good as Lynn when it comes to finding really great stuff! She just has a knack!!! (is that the word??) I know you are going to enjoy the greenhouse! It reminds me of having a little playhouse...

      Love,
