Getting Edgy – for more than one reason

A quick post before an “Oz-some” storm descends on us.

The Serious Sisters demonstrating their form

Today dawned clear, mild and gnat-free.  So after a rousing TRX session in which we were way Wonder Women, I bought edging and supplies, headed home, changed, let the bunnies out and began the tedious task of making edges to shove the black edging into.   Well this is not an easy task.  But, I am working smarter these days.  I think about the specific project, gather all the supplies that I can think of, put water on the front porch, smear on sun screen, especially on my nose (no more actinic keratosis for me),  don polarized sun glasses, let the bunnies out in alternating shifts, and get to it while the shade is on the labyrinth.

Compass rose entry, herbs, rocks

I also inserted more stepables in bare spots, watered all down and said Reiki blessings on the project.  Later in the week I will begin the trimming around the lilies.  But, reluctantly. the deer have already discovered and nipped the asters and Solomon Seal.  But, I keep putting down the smelly egg spray, which works only until the next storm hits.  One is coming now, so I am outta here!  Flash!  Crash!  Rumble!  Headed to the cellar.
