|The answer to my wondering

Earlier I was wondering what would motivate me to get out of the house and do some gardening. Turns out the answer came on the very heels of my post.|
All it took was Ferrett playing DJ Hero. Flee!!!!
It helped that it had clouded up and so was not horribly hot and in the direct sunlight. I got a lot of weeding done and trimmed back the English ivy where it was overshading the herb bed.
And I've decided that the death of the wisteria is beginning to look suspiciously like murder. The hyacinth and the tall grasses planted in the same corner have also all died. It's a bit disturbing.
I did not attack the fountain, nor pick the many ripe raspberries, as the cloud cover only lasted about 90 minutes. But I got a remarkable amount done in that amount of time. I have to remind myself that these things can be attacked in small doses and don't require a full day commitment.
