I was on my way to my community garden plot this morning when I spotted this beauty on the pole just down the road from our house. He saw my camera lens and took off, but not before I got a couple clicks of the camera. I'm not sure if this is a Red-Shouldered Hawk or not. Any guesses?
Where Would You Like to Go Today?
Lots of projects on my To Do List! I started painting the master bedroom, which we actually use as a guest bedroom, on Monday. With the darker color, it took three coats of paint to cover and three days to complete.
Tomorrow we plant our community garden plot with our winter vegetables. I can't wait to have beets, chard, lettuces and other goodies for the salad bowl.
Once the garden is planted then I will move on to the herb garden project. For years I have wanted to put in brick raised beds. I found these bricks for sell on Craigslist in August. The woman I bought these from said that her father worked at a local San Diego manufacturing site in the 60's, and at one time acquired a huge amount of their glazed bricks, I bought 400 of them; I hope it is enough for the raised beds.
Thanks to a very kind friend, I now have instructions on how to build the beds! The space below is my herb garden, the photo is from 2010 and the plants are much larger now. I will dig them out and put in pots until I am ready to replant them in the new beds. I want to make 4 separate beds with walking space in-between. I think I will use the Arizona Moss Flagstone for the pathways around the beds. Now should I set those in with sand or should I use concrete? I need to give this more thought..and call my friend.
